A series of performances by Mimika Theatre of “Landscapes” at Skelton Grange Environment Centre.

A theatre of remarkable visual effects and transformations all set inside a beautiful calico dome, ‘Landscapes’ takes us on a journey around the globe absorbing the atmosphere, movements, rhythms and sounds of four contrasting areas of the natural world – desert, sea, rainforest and the Antarctic.

The performance is suitable for children and adults of all ages and abilities as it is non verbal, and uses beautiful hand-painted scenery and puppets to tell the stories.

Yo-Yos is particularly suitable for young people with learning disabilities or on the autistic spectrum, but it is open to all. Their only requirement is an enthusiasm for the arts!
