The Thought That Counts
Co-commissioned by BITE:05, Barbican and Young Vic as part of the Young Genius Festival in 2005
How big is a million? Is there a man in the moon? What colour is music? Can I touch Light?
A child’s curiosity is endless, and asking questions is often more important than finding the answer. The Thought that Counts was a playful and enchanting celebration for 4–7 year olds of how we learn through play. Taking its inspiration from the notion that a genius is someone who, like children, keeps asking questions, the show created a magical world using theatre, dance, animated shapes, puppetry and video.
Performances at The Barbican (2005) and UK / International tour (2007).
