‘Bonhomme’ is a family show built with mud and powered by thoughts, offering a unique family experience.
Based in a community garden, this new participatory show blends story-telling, philosophy, clay modelling, object theatre, live music.
Children are natural philosophers and start to question the world around them very early on. What’s Coming out of the Box firmly believes that children’s theatre should not shy away from big juicy topics. They enjoy asking big questions to small people.
What makes a good human? is the philosophical question we examine in ‘Bonhomme’.
“Clever, thought provoking, children’s theatre touching on hard subject-matter in a gentle and interactive way.”
