Do you remember the whale that swam into the Thames? That whale, called "Wally", is back in the capital for three days only in Once Upon A Thames by Lunidea, from 15 to 17 October in the Leicester Square theatre.
Wally's story mesmerised and united Londoners for three days in January 2006, and has now been turned into a beautiful, moving and irresistibly funny fantasy tale, using mime, dance, music and even sand animation that touches the heart, mind and soul. This world class production is one of a kind - a unique comedy masterpiece. One of the highlights: for the first time on stage in the UK as part of a theatrical performance is a breathtaking live sand animation artist. Only a handful of artists in the world master this technique and he is the only one in the UK. View the trailer here.
