Shows

The Boy Who Loved Tiny Things (theatre / visual arts)

Artist: Drop Bear Theatre, The Seam Collective and Zoe Barry

There is a boy. The boy who loved tiny things. He would like to show you some of his collection…

You will see some tiny things - you may have seen them before, you may not. They may have been here for a very, very long time, they may have only just arrived....but they are all TINY. They are tiny, and every tiny thing has a story…Is anything missing? Did you notice?

This in-development showing of The Boy Who Loved Tiny Things, is a participatory theatre work that explores wonder, solace, care taking and story making, through one boy’s collection of tiny things. Be encouraged to play creatively, as you contribute to the ongoing creation of a museum of fantastical tiny things, through sculpture and storytelling.

The work is presented by the creators of Rain, Drop Bear Theatre and The Seam Visual Collective, together with director Zoë Barry and Osten Burkum, the original boy who loved tiny things. Osten is 9 and lives in Minnesota.
