Twinkle

Twinkle

Commissioned by Anvil Arts, Twinkle was a large scale theatrical and musical extravaganza performed by children from Treloar School and 120 pupils from Basingstoke junior schools including Marnel, Winklebury, St. Mary's, Old Basing and Four Lanes.

There are dozens of stories to be read in the stars of the night sky, Twinkle explored three of these legends: the constellations Orion, Andromeda and Cygnus - stories that are as relevant today as they were two or three millennia ago.

The constellations were mankind's earliest picture books and they are still a powerful instrument to inspire the imagination of young and old alike. Using David Jackson's soundbeam technology as well as conventional instruments allowed all the performers to integrate successfully.
