Presented By Compagnie L'Homme Debout

MO and the Red Ribbon

29 June 2019

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Type: Spectacle

MO and the Red Ribbon involves a child who has been separated from his family and the fantasy of his journey towards a new life. Featuring large-scale processional puppetry, with the focus on a child puppet, this moving and spectacular performance reflects on stories of migration, as well as providing an occasion for celebration and festivity. Look out for a red ribbon, returning again and again linking the child to their family, their country, their experiences and their new life.

Full programme and more information to be announced.

Bow photography project

Are you a young person living in Bow with an interest in photography? If so, this project is for you. As part of Compagnie L’Homme Debout’s MO and the Red Ribbon, we’re recruiting young photographers to be part of a local project focusing on community and place in Bow East and Bow West. This is a great opportunity to learn about the art of photography, and the resulting photos will be displayed in an exhibition and you’ll also be part of a special preview event.
