James Allan

Master storyteller Polarbear spins his own origin story in this remarkable piece of interactive theater that is both a one-man show and a creative writing workshop for kids. He begins his story at age 10 when his father disappears and he discovers a talent for telling tales. This sets off a chain reaction from which emerges a world filled with international assassins, secret codes, dog-eating boa constrictors, and plenty of adventure. Throughout the journey, he takes time to talk with his rapt young audience members, offering them a chance to open their mouths and let their own stories come to life. Mouth Open, Story Jump Out is a Battersea Arts Centre Production.


Performance length: 55 minutes

“Storytelling at its purest...a lively and poignant tale.”
