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 a day from Wednesday to Saturday, May 14 -17.

The international showcase is a rare Scottish-German partnership between Starcatchers – Scotland’s leading arts organisation for early years – and Theatre o.N (Berlin).

Andy and Ania take audiences on a gentle journey using visual storytelling 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.

Fred Pommerehn designed the creative theatre with music by Danny Krass and dramaturgy by Dagmar Domroes.

Developed in Berlin and Edinburgh for children aged 2-4 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 at aberdeenperformingarts.com, by calling 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.
