WIRRAL – Kelda Discovers the Wirral
Artists: Thingumajig Theatre
Locations: Various Wirral locations (see schedule below)
‘Kelda’ (an old Norse name meaning “spring” or “fountain”) is a giant puppet of Viking lineage. She is an inquisitive child who embodies the spirit of discovery and wonder.
Through 3 puppeteer/performers she is able to interact with both her surroundings and her audience. Each Wirral venue has its own performance specific to its attractions, though the general story is that ‘Kelda’ is a Viking girl who once lived in the Wirral.
She has travelled into the present and with the aid of her very keen (but slightly geeky) archaelogist guides, is curious to meet and communicate with the current residents and learn about the treasures of the Wirral of today, from space travel to art galleries to growing vegetables..! Her guides know all about her Viking heritage and are able to help children communicate with her.
