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

Anonymouse is a lyrical and multi-sensory piece designed to engage together the youngest of audience members and the adults who bring them. The story is about a writer who journeys into the woods and finds poems left by a very shy little mouse that tell the living of the seasons. The poems are told in vision and touch as well as sound (including words). It is a tale of connection and of finding ways to inhabit the present, inspired by Thoreau's Walden and the way little children explore the natural world.
First performed at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh from 10-21st August 2015 as part of the Fringe Festival. It was remounted in 2016 for the Puppet Animation Festival with direction from Eszter Marsalko.

"Fantastic production for young children! I came with my niece and she was completely engrossed and in this multi-sensory show. The performers are both amazing and really connect with children and adults alike. I wish there were more shows like this at the Fringe!" Audience member
