Schools Concert: Butterfly Brain

This event was streamed live from Wigmore Hall on Wednesday 27 June 2018

'STOP LEANING BACK ON YOUR CHAIR!' Are the same six words, in the same particular order, that Gus is told every day from his teacher, his Dad and granny but NEVER EVER hears. Until one day, something rather extraordinary happens…

In an exhilarating flight of fantasy and magic written by Laura Dockrill with music composed by Kerry Andrew, this cautionary tale explores all the curiously obscure, brilliant and bizarre dreams, thoughts, ideas and fears inside a brain and how one little boy takes those wonderful things for granted. Butterfly Brain is a wild explosion of colour, sound, and the imagination.
