Synopsis
 
"Throughout Africa and Asia the survival of wildife is threatened and this diminishes us as people," Virginia McKenna.

elephant

Ten performers from South Africa and the UK have combined to create this new show – a theatre of magic, dance, live music, elaborate body puppetry and large scale visual storytelling.

In this production the elephant is a metaphor for the themes of truth and freedom, captivity and democracy. In the story a boy betrays, for human greed, the animal that befriended him as a child.

Elephant has grown out of the desire to expand the scale and the themes of the earlier show An Elephant Called Slowly show and to work with performers from South Africa.

Ozzie Riley, Director of Dodgy Clutch, was inspired by the quality and commitment of the work he saw when visiting the Grahamstown Arts Festival South Africa, July 2002. This new show will drawn on the strength of the skills of the partners involved and allow for an exchange of experience.
