The award-winning Patchwork is one of South Africa`s first Early Years theatre productions. Since it was created in 2014 with a seed-funding grant from the European Small Size Network, Patchwork has toured extensively, from international festivals in Italy and Iran to rural South African schools.

The whole show unfolds around a bed: the place where the comfort of home meets the strange world of dreams. In this world pillows become creatures learning to fly, a sheet dances with a life of its own, a teddy and a lamp make best friends, and the proverbial cow jumps over the moon (as do the sheep and the dinosaur).

Patchwork was developed through intense research with the age group, to develop a theatrical language that meets our audience eye-to-eye, mind-to-mind.
