Lemon Tree to welcome award-winning children’s theatre makers for unique show

Fresh from performances in Germany, Starcatchers and Theater o.N. (Berlin) are bringing an intricate visual story for young children a small story / eine kleine geschichte, to Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree Studio next month as part of a Scottish tour.

The new co-production is the first early years work in Scotland by award-winning theatre maker Andy Manley, co-created and performed with Ania Michaelis, and will be staged twice daily Wednesday to Saturday, May 14 -17.

This international show is a rare Scottish-German collaboration between Starcatchers – Scotland's leading arts organisation for early years – and Theatre o.N (Berlin).

Using visual storytelling, Andy and Ania take audiences on a tender journey exploring the little things that make a big difference in our lives; a tiny glass giggles and hides, a pair of pepper pots fall in love and an old teapot and a chipped vase dance.

This wonderfully creative piece of children's theatre is designed by Fred Pommerehn with music by Danny Krass and dramaturgy by Dagmar Domroes.

Developed in Berlin and Edinburgh for children aged two to four and their grown ups, the production is funded by Creative Scotland, Goethe Institut Glasgow and Support for Innovative Approaches of the Fonds Darstellende Kunste e.V. (Fund for Performing Arts) - funded by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Berlin Senate Cultural Affairs Department.

Tickets are available online at www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
