Produced by Forest Tribe Dance Theatre
Alluriat is a watery wonderland where two sisters have a bond that seems unbreakable beneath the waves. Told by two performers – Purvi Parmar and Jennifer Kay – using puppetry, illusion and physical theatre, this bold new show fuses stunning visuals and digital technology to explore themes of love and division, nurture and abandonment and environmental change.
Even in a busy brightly lit library, children can enter a new world, with live puppetry, projections and holographic trickery!
Alluriat was developed as an R&D piece in 2016 and delighted children at Oldham Library Theatre. Since then it has evolved as a mobile show and encompasses technologies to dazzle, thought-provoking choreography and an original score.
Director: Debbie Bandara
'Both Parmar and Kay proved to be very enigmatic performers and their ability to tell a rather abstract story concentrating far more on 'emotion' and 'feel' rather than narrative was impressive. Their engagement was total and the children lapped this up.'
