Breaking the Ice – Children’s Show

Filskit Theatre are delighted to bring their production of Breaking the Ice to The Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University as part of a national tour this February.

CHILDREN’S SHOW – TUESDAY 16TH FEBRUARY – NUFFIELD THEATRE – LANCASTER

This interactive production for very youngest audiences is a newly devised show that is inspired by a true story about the unlikely friendship between a wild polar bear and Husky, a story made famous via the videos on YouTube. Young children will have the opportunity to get on stage, play with the characters and experience interactive digital projections at the end of the show.

Join us on a journey into the snow where music, shadows and projection will transport you to a place where polar bears and Huskies really can be friends. Then watch as your child joins in with the adventure and takes their place on Team Polar Bear or Team Husky!
Filskit Theatre Company is an all-female ensemble with a passion for projection. Working with an innovative, interactive technology and playful, wordless physicality they aim to create work that ignites the imagination of young audiences and their families.
Filskit was founded in 2009 and is led by Artistic Directors Katy Costigan, Victoria Dyson and Sarah Shephard, who are all alumni from Rose Bruford College. Past productions from Filskit include Snow White and The Feather Catcher.
Breaking the Ice also features a soundtrack created especially for the production by Torgeir Vassvik, a Sami vocalist and composer who comes from the northernmost point of the Norwegian mainland, Gamvik in Finnmark. Known for his endlessly inventive blend of ancient Sami folk music, sounds from nature, diverse instruments (including the saw, bells, viola, frame drums and guitars), Vassvik employs the traditional Sami practice of the joik; a form of long, slow, chant-style song formed deep in the throat, intended to act as an aural representation of an individual person, landscape or animal.


The projections used in the show have been created by Paddy Molloy, a London-based illustrator who works extensively for theatre and print publications including Theatre O/Young Vic, Barbican, National Theatre Studio, The Guardian, New York Times, Time Out, Random House and BBC Worldwide.
