Head in the Clouds strikes a near perfect balance between storytelling and interactive elements of play for very young audiences.

A rolling play for babies and their families

Lively, musical and slightly wild, this is an outdoor performance that draws on the natural curiosities of children (and ex-children). Inspired by the game played by Calvin and Hobbes in their comic strip, it's part Mornington Crescent, part Caucus-race; we know the rules are out there somewhere and the only way to find them is to play and see.

Developed in part with improvisational theatre techniques, we've tackling our aim of encouraging play head on. Building on our experience with under threes we focused on making a theatre experience that was accessible to curious and active toddlers - and whoever they bring with them.

Facilitated by Charlotte Allan, Calvinball was developed and performed by EmmaClaire Brightlyn, Robbie Gordon and Maria Giergiel.
