The Selfish Giant Kicks off Half Term Fun at The Met

The Met welcomes the Selfish Giant, a brand new production of storytelling and dance based on the much loved tale by Oscar Wilde, on Tuesday 25 October at 1.30pm.

This delightful story about a selfish, sad and lonely giant has been transformed by director Steve Stickley and choreographer Darren Ellis into a magical, inventive, and captivating show for families.

One day, the Giant returns from a seven year visit to his friend the Cornish Ogre to find children playing in his beautiful garden. \”What are you doing here?\” he cries in a very gruff voice, and the children run away.

\”My own garden is my own garden,\” says the Giant; \”anyone can understand that and I will allow nobody to play in it but myself. \”So he builds a high wall all round it and puts up a notice-board – TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED.

Nobody wants to be with the Giant except the wind, rain and snow – not even the plants – and his garden remains locked in a wintery chill. But one morning as the Giant lies awake in bed, something is different…

Springs Dance Company is a unique company that tours the UK and internationally, performing and teaching work that is dynamic, entertaining and challenging.

Tickets for the event are £6 and the show if suitable for children 5+. The company are also holding dance workshops for children of all ages the following morning. For more information or to book please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
