Nicole & Martin at Taurus Crafts
8 - 10 August
This August see’s the much anticipated return of the fabulous Swiss travelling entertainers – Nicole & Martin.
With three shows in three days there is plenty of opportunity to catch their amazing adaptations of traditional European fairy tales. ‘More than theatre’ their shows are an incredible mix of circus skills, acrobatics, miming, acting, multiple instruments, comedy and creative costume.
Wednesday 8 August : The Girl Without Hands
A poor Miller meets a stranger in the forest who makes him the following proposition: “Give me only what’s behind your Mill and I will make you very rich.” There isn’t anything behind my Mill, thinks the Miller. He accepts the terms. But oh, he should not have. Behind his Mill his daughter had been sweeping. The pact with the devil signed and sealed, the fate will fall on the Girl. How will she manage to escape it?
Thursday 9 August: The Musicians of Bremen
A donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster: They are old and tired and no longer fulfil their master’s expectations. A sad end seems unavoidable. The four animals decide to escape – so off they go. They head for Bremen, where they intend to start a new life as town musicians. But will they ever make it to Bremen or will they stay with the robbers they meet in the forest?
Friday 10 August: The Fisherman and His WifeThe fisherman sits and waits for a fish to bite. But the fish that he catches is a mysterious one: one that grants the fisherman and his wife many wishes. This play is an exciting journey from one wish to the next.
