The Tree of Light description
Work in Development
Join Slingsby’s journey of creating The Tree of Light and follow their path to making their most ambitious project.
Over the next three years, Slingsby is creating a new flat-pack theatre to travel the world sustainably with a triptych of plays under the banner of A Concise Compendium of Wonder. Adelaide Festival audiences are invited to experience this work-in-progress with a development performance of the first of these works, The Tree of Light.
Written by acclaimed author and science writer Ceridwen Dovey, The Tree of Light is a radical reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl for family audiences and young people.
Slingsby will share the first iteration of The Tree of Light in their rehearsal hall where director Andy Packer, the creative team and performers will unpack the process of making an immersive theatre production.
This is a rare opportunity to follow the development of a major theatre work across three years.
It is theatre like the work Slingsby produces which makes us all imagine a better and happier world.
