Synopsis: Vaselina lives the quiet life, working as a receptionist in a very tall apartment block. But all that changes when she is forced to confront a terrifying resident who plays her music far too loudly and eats her jelly babies with her mouth open.
Who is this mysterious neighbor? Will she ever turn the music down? And what exactly is she planning for dinner? An uproarious musical journey to the top floor and beyond. Baba Yaga is a brand new take on an old Russian folktale created by director Rosemary Myers and two unique and celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe; Shona Reppe (Scotland; The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean) and Christine Johnston (Australia; The Kransky Sisters).

Two excitable brothers, are definitely, about to, almost, at some stage, are maybe going to do the chores their mother asked them to do…
Chores is the story of two typical young rascal boys playing in their mess of a room. Suddenly, mother’s alarming screams rattle the boys back in to acrobatic action. A generous serve of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt of cleaning of their room and doing their chores. This mess of a chaos and comedy concludes with a last-minute cleaning spree. Mum is kept at bay and the rewards come flooding in.
The show can bump in in two hours or less – it is very simple with a simple lighting wash required. It can also be performed outdoors (as long as its flat and smooth surface).
The show runs for 60 minutes and the acrobats always meet their audiences afterwards. Workshops can be included if venues are interested in this for £100.
Dates available from April through to end of August, with the exception of the time they are Edinburgh Fringe.
