Come with us on a wonderful journey through the world of trolls, dragons, mermaids, monsters and legends old and new, all from the land of the northern lights. Troll Stories is a unique storytelling performance on the mysterious world of Trolls and Scandinavian folk-lore. Combining storytelling, puppets, imagination and plain silliness to engage and entertain.
Based on two small-scale children’s shows Troll Stories works with a single performer and offers a range of performance styles: from a traditional one hour sit down show through to an interactive walk-around meet and greet where the public interact with a troll one to one. Something very different and very special.
The work around Troll Stories is also being expanding into an exhibition.
A history show about the people, places and rich history of Enfield, which is celebrating its 50th year as a London Borough. Developed from work for Enfield’s Museum Service the show is aimed at young children and is hosted by the worlds only living Enfield (a strange heraldic animal). Local history will never quite be the same again. www.enfield50.com
