| 2010 - 2014 |

Early years dance theatre production | Produced by Travelling Light & the Bristol Old Vic in association with Champloo Dance Company.

Set on Christmas Eve, BOING! is an energetic and enchanting piece of children’s dance theatre that captures the delirious excitement of waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year. Adored by both critics and children when it made its London debut at the Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio last year, BOING! was made in collaboration with Travelling Light and Bristol Old Vic.

Directed by children’s theatre specialist Sally Cookson and choreographed by award-winning b-boys Wilkie Branson and Joel Daniel, BOING! combines comedy, acrobatics and breakdance to dazzling effect. Too excited to sleep, Wilkie and Joel are drawn into ever more exciting games that turn their bed into a giant trampoline. The ensuing chaos guarantees to leave children bursting with Christmas spirit!
