Isle of Wight Children’s Festival: Yana and The Yeti

New Isle of Wight Children’s Festival will start on the 12th April until the 14th April 2018 at the Quay Arts Centre in Newport. Tree days of award-winning performances, spellbinding storytelling, magical experiences, mad games and wicked workshops.

Excited to see first performance “Yana and the Yeti” created by Bristol puppetry geniuses Pickled Image team up with Olivier-nominated writer Hattie Naylor. They will introduce us to their stunning show for children featuring, of course, a real-life Yeti.

Imagine being far, far from home and all alone, arriving in a remote snow-bound village surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how Yana’s story begins…
She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mythical mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy…

Featuring exquisite music, arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is aimed at family audiences (5+). This is a dark, funny and poignant tale of a small child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes.

This show was made in Northern Norway, above the Arctic Circle where Yetis still exist.
