A WinterWalker and Theatre Hullabaloo Production, co-produced with Derby Theatre
Derby Theatre Productions , Studio
Wednesday 31 July 2019 - Saturday 10 August 2019

FREE Stay 'n' Play Area before and after the show and FREE Ice Cream with every ticket

Eyes see, fingers touch,
Noses breathe in deep,
Tongues taste, ears hear,
Bodies ready- leap!

What’s this? What does it look like? How does it feel? Does it smell nasty, or taste nice? Does it make a noise?

Join two dancers and a live musician as they use their eyes and ears, noses and mouths, fingers and feet to discover a world of play that makes the ordinary extraordinary.

Five at Derby Theatre

FIVE is a playful exploration of our five human senses through dance, movement and live music. Created by Derbyshire-based family theatre specialists WinterWalker, this warm, funny and inclusive show is a perfect introduction to live performance for children age 3 to 6 and their grown-ups.

“Little mouths were open as they were absolutely mesmerised by the entire performance.”
Boom Magazine (Holiday, 2018)

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
