    Genre Theatre,

    Tortoise in a Nutshell

    Amy pores over the memories of her late father, a war photographer,
    travelling into his past working in conflict zones across the globe.

    Examining the stories behind the lens, three performers conjure up dazzling
    images with cardboard, sand and shadow; blending puppetry, projection and object manipulation to create an intimate and engaging piece of visual theatre.

    Grit is a poignant study inspired by the real experiences of children and
    young people and questions whether innocence and imagination can have any place or value within worlds of conflict.

    Tortoise in a Nutshell is an award-winning (Edinburgh Festival Fringe First 2013: Feral), Edinburgh-based visual theatre company creating work which aims to stir and ignite the imagination.
