The Magic Fish

Part of Alchemy

Presented by ATMA Dance, The Magic Fish tells a classic tale through dance, storytelling and beatboxing.

Children are invited to discover the magical story of Vishnu, one of India’s shape-shifting supergods, in an interactive production. After sleeping for thousands of years, Vishnu wakes up to find a greedy demon called No-Knowledge has taken earth’s most precious treasures for himself. Vishnu embarks on a quest to rescue them back.

Enlisting the help of King Manu to save the precious treasures, Vishnu changes his form into something quite unexpected. Join the pair on their adventure to save the world.

Commissioned by The Place, GemArts and Pavilion Dance South West and supported by The Unicorn Theatre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
