A cabaret aboutfathersanddaughtersandother strange mysteries. One Tacky Tree is a joyful experiment in cross generational collaboration. With material that ranges from original songs to pop, rock, blues and folk covers, (using two pianos, a violin, mouth organ, xylophone and various garden implements); One Tacky Tree celebrates the innocence of kids and the bond of family in a cabaret of fleeting moments, small consequences and occasional bliss.
Devised by Ant and Callum Crowley
Wolf Boy and Zombie Dad is part installation, part clown/busking/side-show set in a magical wardrobe. Inside and out is a test of will-power between father and his son, culminating in a mass 'audience participation' sword fight (foam) that celebrates the joy of family and the power of play.
Roll up, roll up. A father and son share a wardrobe of dreams in this eccentric, heart-warming piece of street theatre for the whole family. Anthony Crowley and his ten year old son Callum devise and perform a curious sideshow of puppetry, mime, sound and image. Peer inside and witness a moment or two, perhaps even three of the strange but true tale of wolf meeting zombie. Wolf Boy craves play. Zombie Dad craves work. Work is his play and play takes time. Time is short. Time is pressure. Precious. Fleeting. But Wolf Boy possesses a phantasmagorical secret. By the light of the full moon; time is eternal.
