“Sweet and Subtle... When it’s time to go, no one wants to leave” FEST Magazine
”If you have a baby... I recommend Snigel & Friends... a gentle 40 minutes featuring a delicious snail & flirty bee... [a] little charmer” The Guardian
Shortlistied for a Total Theatre award at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Join Snigel, the inquisitive snail, in their cosy home underneath the leafy canopy; a colourful and sensory world where Snigel’s insect friends – brought to life by dancers Caroline Bowditch, Welly O’Brien and Alex McCabe and musician Zac Scott – come to visit. They dance, play, sing and make music in the undergrowth while uncovering secret treasures.
An inviting new work for children aged 0 – 12 months and their adult.
Caroline talks more about the inception of the idea:
"...there is very little work being made that involves performers who have non-normative bodies for children. So as a disabled child if you go to the theatre you see people that don’t necessarily share your physicality, therefore we disabled bodies remain absent or there is very little aspiration potentially for young disabled people to be on stage - so I wanted to address that."
