Venue: Tour Dates Below

Date: 19th May to July 31st 2023


Rustle the leaves, pick the apples, peek through the branches and dance with the animals.

Tree was shown 48 times in the summer of 2024, she took root in 16 venues across Cornwall from libraries to gardens!

TREE is a magical, nurturing soul, the tallest and oldest in her forest. Her roots are a playground for all the woodland animals, her branches for the bees and birds to dance, weave and fly through. The seasons change, bringing rain or shine, warmth or cold, yet through it all, TREE stays, standing tall and still, providing a haven of safety for the creatures in the wood.

Cscape’s Imaginarium presents TREE, a dance theatre adventure for little ones to enjoy, together with their grown-ups. Based on the popular children’s book illustrated by Britta Teckentrup and written by Patricia Hegarty, TREE combines dance performance, story-telling, design, music and interactive activities into a multi-sensory, live theatre experience for under 5’s and their grown ups.

Seasons come, seasons go, come along and see our show.
