A bookbinder is looking for a new apprentice. Maybe someone in the audience would like the job? But he must warn us first of what happened to the last child who worked for him: this boy needed to find a lost page from a particularly magical tome, and found himself on a strange and mystical adventure…
Weaving silhouettes, paper-art, puppets and music, The Bookbinder is a curious and clever solo performance for savvy children and their grown-up companions.
In the spirit of the idea that theatre is for EVERYONE, here’s a real little gem for little and big people alike, all the way from (little) New Zealand. – Eamon
