You are the Sun is a very first opera for babies and grownups that explores the magic of nature. Combining the joy of gentle classical singing and sensory play it is an invitation to see beauty in the smallest things and to let plants be our guides.
Audiences will help us to celebrate the gift of nature as we conjure a world out of breath, water, sunlight and soil in this magical musical adventure for 0-2s.
HurlyBurly Theatre make playful theatrical experiences for babies and adults with gentle classical singing at their heart. We make shows where babies are free to be themselves and grown-ups have a chance to relax, bond and play.
This brand-new show follows the success of ‘Meet me a Tree’ and ‘The Bug Hotel’ which have toured to theatres, festivals and libraries across the country.
“Wow! Just wow! That was simply wonderful! I was amazed how you engaged our little one, who wasn’t sure at the start but quickly wanted to be on stage. She LOVED it!”
“What a special performance! Thank you so much. My 13m old was absolutely captivated. As was I. It’s by far the best baby-orientated activity I have done!”
You are the Sun is created by HurlyBurly (Catherine Carter and Sarah Forbes) with original music and words by Catherine Carter. The design is by Kirsty Harris. The show’s development has been supported by The Egg (Theatre Royal Bath), Portsmouth Guildhall and Watermans Arts Centre as well as Arts Council England.
It is performed by classical singers and theatre makers Sarah and Catherine and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Gren Bartley. The ensemble have previously worked together on HurlyBurly Shows including ‘The Bug Hotel’ and ‘Meet me a Tree’ which have toured extensively nationally including to Hullabaloo, Gulbenkian, The Egg, Z-Arts, Half Moon and Warwick Arts.
