Z-arts and Breaking Cycles present Pinocchio
Moss Side in the 1970s. The year of the heat-wave. Radio music, laughter, heat zizzing off the walls. We’re in a toy-shop, but this is no ordinary toy-shop…
In this toy-shop piled with junk, where the old, worn-out and discarded is given new life, nothing becomes something, rubbish becomes beautiful, and anything is possible. Barely discernable figures are strung around the walls. Slowly but surely one of them starts to twitch into life…
This is a version of Pinocchio like no other, featuring a top-class body-popper, music, dance and puppetry. It has been created by the fantastic Manchester-based theatre-maker,hip-hop artist and choreographer Benji Reid.
