The Book Keepers
Meet Pippy and Lizzibella – intrepid explorers, tellers of tantalizing tales and guardians of the intriguingly ingenious StoryGenerator. Join them to see what secrets this mysterious contraption holds, hear their stories and create your own.
Devised for 4 – 10 year olds and their families.
The Book Keepers is available as an interactive performance where Pippy and Lizzibella tell a menu of choreographed stories from around the world, followed by a workshop where children use the machine and create their own StoryMap books.
It is also available as walkabout performance where stories are brought to life and created in collusion with curious families who discover what the StoryGenerator is capable of….
