Varmints tells the poignant tale of one small creature’s struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever. Every day the city grows larger and the noise grows louder, until there is so much noise that no one can hear themselves think.

This exhilarating new dance-theatre show is based on Helen Ward and Marc Craste’s award-winning book of the same name. Young people and adults will be caught up in the sights and sounds of this interpretation of a well loved tale.

Performance runs: c.60 minutes

Suitable for ages 7+

*A special performance for schools that is also open to the public.


Varmints is produced by East London Dance, Sadler’s Wells and Stratford Circus.

“Utterly dazzling, rumbustious, exhilarating dance theatre, enrapturing for children and adults alike.” The Guardian
