LONDON TALENTS PRESENTS FROM HERE... TO THERE

London Talents
For the first time in India, from the UK - An educational theatre show which explores the concept of sharing, caring and empathising with others!

About London Talents..

London Talents' is a UK based organisation that tours educational theatre shows for children and their parents. These multisensory shows are performed by adult specialist actors and are conceptually researched with educationalists, percussionists, performers, focus groups of children and with the latest knowledge of neuroscientists' work in child development. These shows use theatre techniques such as puppetry, emoting through material, movement, vocal rhythm, music, dance and play to look at concepts from a child's perspective and explain the logical outcome from very much a child's perspective. Examples of the concepts we work with are sharing, caring, empathising, good eating habits to name a few! London Talents cover a range of concepts and themes that are universal and close to the hea! rt of every parent and child.

More about 'From Here to There'
Very often as parents and care takers of young children we find ourselves instructing our children… 'No, no. no…its wrong…you must share!', but how often do we pause and show them that by sharing and caring we can build beautiful things in life together and that we can explore humanitarian feelings and empathise with others through play? The show 'From Here to There' explores the above.

It is a show that encourages 'shared play' and explores humanitarian feelings through play! A show that's all about bridges! Musical bridges and magic bridges, bridges that tell stories of hungry trolls and greedy goats. Bridges where people can meet and make a friend! We take children through a world of the imagination where two quite independent individuals discover ways to share, play together and reach each other. A show truly fun and educational for children & their parents!

Also included, following the main performance by our specialised actors are:

Workshops with our actors and specialised musician and free play sessions for the children to help them explore concepts from the show.

A session for parents with our education consultant and a parental awareness guide, which addresses day to day situations with children and equips parents with hands on techniques using drama in education.

Performance followed by optional show related games, worksheets & reading corner.

The shows will be performed at selected schools across Mumbai and Delhi exclusively and at selected venues across Mumbai which will be open to public.
