“beautifully tasteful little show”THE GUARDIAN 4*
An enchanting, dark modern fairy tale about a little girl who lives in a box, her adventures and her quest to find home.
Oriana, meaning the chosen one or golden one, is the story of a girl who goes on a journey with three sleep travellers. Each of the travellers disappears during the different seasons within the year, signifying a passing of time. Oriana chooses not to join them and carry on her travels.
60 minutes of dance, music and dynamic theatre without one word spoken.
