A comic, anarchic, touching and heroic full mask adventure
Vamos Theatre, in a co-production with The Courtyard Hereford, is delighted to present its new full mask touring production, Finding Joy.
Joy is creative, funny, loves to dance, and is losing her memory: her grandson Danny is rebellious, fearless, bright, and always getting into trouble. When out of the blue, Danny decides to become Joy’s carer, where will their unexpected and playful bond lead them?
Vamos Theatre creates innovative full mask theatre that brims with visual inventiveness, music, puppetry, dexterity and hilarity. Finding Joy is based on life events and true stories, and is created in association with movement play specialists JABADAO. It is funny and fearless theatre from one of the UK’s foremost full mask theatre companies.
