This beautiful new dance production for families with children aged 7+ explores a reimagined story of how this much-loved character would have coped against the Wicked Witch in the deep dark wood and discovers the new personalities he might have met along the way.

Told with brilliant humour and touching pathos, TIN MAN will resonate with children and adults alike with its charming storytelling, dramatic choreography, stunning costume and lighting and a newly commissioned score by award-winning composer Anna Appleby.

TIN MAN will tour from March 2022 with live performances from music ensemble Psappha at selected venues.

Watch this space for more information on our collaborators, tour dates and opportunities to be announced soon!

Co-commissioned by DanceEast, Swindon Dance, Pavilion Dance South West and Kala Sangam. Supported by the  University of Sheffield Enable US Project.


Available for touring from March 2022 onwards
