The Little Witch is only 127.5 years old, and that's not at all old for a witch. She spent about six hours a day doing exercises in witchcraft, but she just couldn't get her spells right. And then she got into deep disgrace at the Walpurgis night party! She has got a year to prove herself. And so the journey begins.
 
An immersive site-sensitive dance theatre piece performed for and by people of all ages. Join The Little Witch on a magical journey, where the performers invite you to step into a dreamworld that unfolds before your eyes. Moving through forests and fields, winds and storms, you’ll see what it takes to be a good witch. Weird and wonderful creatures appear from the shadows, songs and soundscapes echo through the landscape.

The wonderful story of The Little Witch by Ottfried Preussler provides inspiration for a mystical and enchanted performance trail. In a rich mix of dance, theatre and live music The Little Witch explores themes of age, identity and belonging.

The Little Witch for InTRANSIT is also part of Big Dance 2014.
