TOURING SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS 2022!
A subterranean adventure in song and shadow!
Urza and The Song in the Dark is a brand-new children’s story set in a subterranean wonderland of complex caves, underground lakes and fantastical creatures.
A mysterious song leads a young girl named Urza on an adventure in the depths of the earth. Along the way she befriends a lost explorer, gets pursued by a mysterious, dark force and finds herself caught up in a primeval story of mythic proportions.
Devised for young audiences aged 7+, Urza and The Song in the Dark brings together amazing puppetry, live songs, original music and stunningly layered, shadow visuals to take audiences on an epic journey underground.
Artfully analogue, handmade, bespoke excellence in design and execution.
