The Barrington Hippo tells the story of a prehistoric baby hippo’s life using beautiful, live animation inspired by cave painting.
Originally created by cutting-edge scientists from Cambridge University working with children to explore our geological heritage, this is a performance suitable for all ages.
The stunning, evocative animations are created live in front of you by Indefinite Articles – the puppeteers who created The Firework-Maker’s Daughter for The Royal Opera House.
Recommended for children aged 4-11 and adults of all ages.
