The Enormous Turnip

Also available as an interactive theatre play session with

A Feast of Folk Tales

DNA imaginativley dish up a trilogy of classic European folk tales, blending puppetry & visual theatre techniques, percussion and audience participation.

Inside a dusty attic, a trunk full of tales comes to life...

Rod and string puppets creatively tell the adventure of a hungry family & their enormous turnip.
The old man's dreams come to life through shadow play as we magically discover that, when we pull together, even the littlest one can make all the difference!

Through the window of a tiny cottage we join the little girl and her mother.
Simmering away at the stove is the magic cooking pot.
Get carried away with us, as the porridge pot overflows, bubbling over into the audience!
Can the children help save the village from the sea of sweet porridge?

Out from the old toy trunk rolls the story of the runaway pancake.
The seven hungry little boys can't catch the pancake puppet as he jumps out of the pan and away!
Join him on his adventure as he rolls across the fields and the imaginations of the audience!
