People Who Live in The Skies

People Who Live in The Skies

Once upon a time, not too long ago, there lived people in the skies…where they built their houses, roads, shops, schools, train and police stations… But one day a fierce wind blew that made them look down to the ground…. and what they found was not what they had hoped…

Exploring topical environmental issues, People who lived in the Skies is an enchanting, exciting and engaging tale using exhilarating storytelling movement of classical Kathak dance, available both as an outdoor show for young people/family audiences as well as indoor children’s theatre.

Expect rotten vegetables, stormy winds and thunderous clouds…oh and a tree that may or may not blossom…

The show is available to run at varying lengths between 20 to 40 mins with live percussion.
