Above Bounds: The Ugly Duckling and Other Tales
Join Above Bounds Theatre Collective as they explore one of the most
loved Hans Christian Anderson stories using songs, shadow puppetry and a little
of your input to tell this famous tale. Come along on the journey with our Ugly
Duck; there’s sure to be gasps, laughs and a few surprises along the way.
On a lake somewhere not far away, a mother duck is sitting on her eggs. But one doesn’t look like the others; it’s a different shape, a brighter colour and is much, much bigger! What will happen when the egg hatches and what stories will hatch with it?
The Ugly Duckling & Other Tales is the culmination of a research and
development project led by Helen Bovey in collaboration with writer George
Boundy and musician Emily Snee. The project is supported using public funding
by The National Lottery through Arts Council England, Exeter City Council and
Kingsteignton Town Council. Project partnership from Worboys Productions and
the Bike Shed Theatre.
Bounds are an emerging Theatre Collective who tell stories in a physically
engaging manner aiming to educate and inspire with every performance.
The collective was founded
by Helen Bovey and George Boundy who trained at East 15 Acting School on the BA
World Performance Course and graduated in July 2013. Together, they create visually exciting
children's theatre, specialising in Early Years and the 3-7 age group.Above Bounds were the recipients for the encoreinsure.com bursary for the Brighton Fringe 2017.
