Dogs Donít Do Ballet     

Dogs Donít Do Ballet Little Angel Theatre at Aberystwyth Arts Centre
2pm, Sunday 23 March, 2014.


DOGS DON’T DO BALLET is based on the book written by Anna Kemp and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie and was adapted by David Duffy and Andrea Sadler. David Duffy directs with set and props by Tim Sykes and puppets and costumes by Keith Frederick.

Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He likes moonlight. And music. And walking on his tiptoes.
You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog, Biff thinks he’s a ballerina…
The sublime and the ridiculous combine in this hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams, brought to life using beautiful puppets, well-loved ballet music and dazzling comedy.


"there is magic in this compact theatre and its glowing stage" Time Out

Little Angel Theatre is "the Home of British Puppetry" and one of only three building-based puppet theatres in England. Established in 1961, their Islington-based theatre is the centre of their activities. The 100 seat theatre stands side-by-side with the workshop, where all their new productions and puppets are developed, carved and constructed. They are dedicated to the celebration and development of puppetry and live animation in all its diverse forms.

Producing and Supporting Excellence For over 50 years they have been providing high quality puppet theatre aimed at family audiences, and are continuing to extend their work for young children and adults. Not only do they produce their own shows which play in-house and tour nationally and internationally, but also welcome puppetry companies from around the UK and overseas to perform on their stage. Little Angel has built a reputation as a leader in the field of puppetry.

"wonderful work that celebrates the possibilities of theatre" The Guardian
