Following a Christmas run at the Unicorn Theatre in 2011, RING A DING DING was performed in venues across the UK and at the New Victory Theater in New York in 2012.
RING A DING DING is an epic – though tiny – table-top voyage of discovery, where your fingers and noses are never far from the action. An immersive, interactive and multi-sensory show for children aged 3 – 6 and their families.
Ring a Ding Ding features a cast of hand crafted puppets, made entirely from recycled materials, by Oily Cart designer Claire de Loon working in collaboration with South African wire worker Mogothi and inspired by traditional African toys. The musical instruments for the show have also been made from recycled materials by Jamie Linwood, who has transformed the chassis of a lorry into an unusual collection of percussion instruments.
The show playfully explores rings in all their forms: from the sounds of bells, to the movement of the specially designed revolving stage and the rotation of the sun, moon and earth overhead.
