When charming UK performer Will Pickvance was young he asked Father Christmas for a spaceship – instead he got a piano.
In this one-man show, Will takes the audience on an adventure into the world of the piano. We find out where they come from, how they evolved and why the make a pretty cool Christmas present.
Anatomy of the Piano premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, receiving critical acclaim and sell-out audiences.
Since then, Will has continued to develop the show’s concept and taken it around the world.
Billed as “part recital, part dissection”, this performance features whirlwind piano playing, songs and stories as well as hand-drawn projections.
This show is for children aged 6+, their parents, aunts, uncles, and even the friendly neighbours. This entertaining look at the innards of a piano features Bach’s cave piano, Beethoven’s bad moods and even a jam with Fats Waller.
A lovely outing for you and the kids on a Friday evening.
