Tales from the Taiga is a modern fairy story, adapted from a traditional Nanai folk tale, set on the border of China and Siberia alongside the Amur River, about a young man and his kindness. Our hero lives in an Arctic world populated by amazing creatures such as Siberian tigers, a giant sturgeon and more. By solving three seemingly impossible tasks, he cleverly wins the hand of the beautiful maiden.
As the low sun and flickering firelight cast their long shadows, Small World Theatre draws the audience into this magical story where the shadows are not always black and white…
Tales from the Taiga is a multi-media performance for children over 3 years of age, featuring full-size puppets, shadow puppets, music, story and actors.
Welsh playwright Carol Byrne-Jones has translated and adapted the story so that it can be performed in Welsh or English languages.
