Jewels in the Tale is a marvellous and mischievous production by I Theatre, featuring a very carefully selected collection of stories and folklore from around the region. The production team searched for suitable tales from all over South East Asia… and now they bring you The Little Green Frog from Korea, The Crane’s Gratitude from Japan, Tenali Raman and the Three Thieves from India, and The Four Dragons, from China, amongst others. Each tale is told in a different style, with elements of Japanese Noh, Classical Indian Dance, Chinese opera blended with western styles of broad slapstick fun and energy.
I Theatre playfully presents these fascinating folk tales through energetic physical theatre, masks and puppetry. With fun, colour and music, this is theatre that will enthral and entertain both young and old alike. Lively action, beautifully crafted stories, and multi-layered performances highlight interesting morals and questions that will challenge and engage. This is a wonderful and unique opportunity to discover some of this region’s colourful heritage of folk tales in a fun and very accessible form.
