Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot
Inspired by Spike Milligan and old shoes
Directed by Steve Tiplady, Puppetry direction Liz Walker
Composed by Iklooshar Malara, Performed by Mark Pitman.
A fantastical tale of the secret life of shoes – what do they get up to when you are not there?
For 3 – 9 year olds
Garlic Theatre take you on a journey to One Shoe Island where farmer Bunyan is fishing for shoes helped by little Roo and a one eyed welly boot.
Their little world of fun and laughter is interrupted by the discovery of a naughty red boot who threatens to walk all over them.
Where did it come from and what does it want?. Shoe Kangaroo goes on an adventure to save her little Roo and discover what the boot is really up to.
Magical transformations and beautifully crafted shoe puppets combine in this bizarre, funny, poetic and imaginative show.
Over 200 artists will be throwing open their doors to you during the two weekends of the Dulwich Festival from 11am – 6pm. All venues will be open on 9-10 May and many will also be open on 16-17 May.
From bouncy castles to beer tents, handmade children’s t-shirts to homemade cakes, designer jewellery to local photography, the 10th Festival Fair will bring together the essence of SE22. New this year is the Love West Dulwich Fair. Dulwich Park Fair makes a welcome return.
Over twenty of the world’s leading street artists have been invited to Dulwich Picture Gallery to study the Baroque paintings and reinterpret them in their own style on walls and pavements around Dulwich creating Dulwich Outdoor Gallery. See some of these street works and the paintings that inspired them, and discuss street art with the organiser, Ingrid Beazley.
