ED2012 Theatre Review: Night Of The Big Wind (Little Cauliflower Theatre Company)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

‘Night of the Big Wind’, a beautiful and wordless tale of a young boy battling against a tempestuous storm, is the new production from the ever-innovative Little Cauliflower Theatre Company. It is simply stunning – the set and costumes are subtle and tonally cohesive and the mesmerising cast moved fluidly around the space. Some sweet comedy during the first quarter sadly didn’t re-emerge, but was happily replaced by poetic puppetry and theatre. As wide-eyed children, three main actors promote a wooden puppet to a fully-fledged character of pathos through skilful manipulation. The large rhythmic set pieces complemented the cast’s subtle, character-led physicality and Irish music. This beautiful production is a must-see piece of visual theatre.

Underbelly Cowgate, 2-25 Aug (not 13), 1.15pm.
