Stories on a String brings the mysteries of the Amazon jungle to life through live Brazilian music, songs and puppetry, for ages 6+.
City girl Jacina must leave her Facebook-fuelled life to travel on a quest for her grandma, into the Amazon jungle. Her journey is full of surprises, as she encounters mythical creatures and discovers her family’s roots! But there’s no WiFi in the rain forest, so when her phone stops working, Jacina feels lost and afraid… She must rely on her eyes, her ears and her heart, as the creatures of the jungle reveal to her a new path and a way back home. Not every answer can be found in the technology in the palm of our hand!
Inspired by Literatura de Cordel, a style of poetry from Brazil recited with music and sold as an illustrated booklet on a string. Presented by Dotted Line Theatre and Polyglot Arts.
