We are going to the theatre three times this week, as there are two great festivals on in Edinburgh at the moment. The first is the Imaginate! children's theatre festival. We saw Bambert's Book of Lost Stories by Aussie company Barking Gecko. Really interesting and challenging themes about creativity, reality and purpose. The boys were very taken with how the cast moved fluidly between different roles. Today at the Traverse we saw Bounce by French company Arcosm. It wrapped up so may of the boys' interests: music, dance, creative writing, drama, gymnastics, and showed them how they can be put together into something at once simple and rich.
