Selling Points

  • Engaging with local choirs and ensembles from the local community that the performance is in
  • Unusual instruments - lute, dulcimer, bell cittern, sansula etc. in a contemporary setting with electronic beats
  • Dandelion Wine’s extensive touring history throughout Europe, Asia and Australia
  • Predominantly female production (Dandelion Wine are two-thirds women, both puppeteers are women, members of most community choirs and many orchestras and ensembles are predominantly women)
  • Family friendly

Community Engagement

  • Local ensemble or choir (central to the show) - this can be a string quartet, chamber orchestra or even a full orchestra
  • Possibility of doing a workshop in combining medieval, folk and classical instruments in a contemporary amplified folk/rock/electronic setting, including arrangement tips, equipment and techniques for amplification, effects and live looping. We have given these workshops in Europe, including with the Alytus Youth Orchestra in Lithuania.
  • Possibility of having a young puppeteer from the local community as an intern on the show (Keira Lyons is a qualified and currently practicing secondary school teacher)
