Imaginate Children's Theatre Festival 2010

Imaginate Children's Theatre Festival 2010

They’re having fun now, but the three merry dancers seen here are about to discover the old adage ‘two’s company, three’s a crowd’. It all ends happily, however, in this lively show from Netherlands-based company De Stilte, aptly entitled Madcap. Friendship seems to be a major theme at this year’s Bank of Scotland Imaginate Festival, with companies from home and abroad exploring how great, and infuriating, pals can be at times.
