Harry and I enjoyed White - a children's performance at Northern Stage today. Two men called Cotton and Wrinkle were dressed all in white and lived in a white tent surrounded by white birdhouses waiting for white eggs to fall from the sky, which they dressed with white knitted hats and put into the birdhouses. Slowly, colours started to appear and they realised that they both love the other colours too.
I love the events for children at Northern Stage - the children are almost in the midst of the performance as they sit very close on the floor and there are often interactive elements. Today, the bin shot out a burst of coloured paper at the end, which the children were encouraged to take home and spread around the house, as parents love colour too! The actors also talked to the children at the end.
