The Girl with No HeartSparkle and Dark's Travelling Players
Their city is made of paper, as are their hearts. The children seek to rebuild an ash-filled world destroyed by war, by folding one paper brick at a time.
From award-winning writer Louisa Ashton, critically acclaimed Sparkle and Dark present their new stark yet beautiful fable inspired by the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings.
Imagine a child's journey from a world of wishes to a world of war. A scarred landscape which can only be rebuilt with paper. A place where a child's heart holds the power for immeasurable good or unimaginable destruction. The Girl With No Heart uses original writing, highly creative puppetry, live music and shadow play.
