For lovers of exquisite, beautifully crafted theatre, a magical realist gem inspired by legendary novelist Gabriel García Márquez’s darkly comic fairy tale. Talented theatre maker Dan Colley has created a show for young and old to share, gorgeously formed around music, puppetry and live video, but also thoughtful and emotionally rich in its exploration of human nature.
In a kitchen, in a theatre, two storytellers and their audience discover something remarkable – a very old man with enormous wings – and invite us to speculate on who he is. An old lady believes he’s an angel. A priest claims he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed, but leave with something very different from what they expected.
Winner of Best Design at the Dublin Fringe, talented theatre maker Dan Colley has created the perfect experience for young and old to share. An emotionally rich exploration of human nature this show is gorgeously formed around music, puppetry and live video.
