Innovative Early Years at The Atkinson With The Adventures of Pom

Innovative Early Years at The Atkinson With The Adventures of Pom

On Sunday 29 November, The Atkinson presents an innovative and interactive sensory performance from one of the UK’s leading early-years performers and storytellers.

The Adventures of Pom recreates the Greek myth of Persephone for babies and little ones. Audiences will be asked to explore the sensory world of spring through projections, soundscapes, storytelling, live music and sensory objects. Follow the maze in to the Underworld and help save Pom!

Yellow petals, singing birds, soft grass beneath your feet; welcome to Spring. Find yourself a lovely spot and stay a while. And here is Pom: climber of trees, chaser of butterflies and daughter of the gods. Her lovely cheeky face makes her mum so happy and all is good. But what’s this tiny hole in the lush green grass? This deep dark twinkling hole…you don’t want to go down there, do you?

Leading early-years story-teller and performance artist Ruthie Boycott-Garnett has been commissioned by Big Imaginations to create a visual and sensory exploration of a Greek Myth with Live music and puppetry that will inspire and delight children from weeks old, to full grown adults.

The Adventures of Pom is performed at The Atkinson on Sunday 29 November at 11am & 1pm.
