Join Hawk Dance Theatre & The Knotted Project on our magical chalky adventure for 3-8 year olds!

The Chit Chat Chalk Show follows Kiko, a confused young girl, struggling to understand how she feels about the strange new world she lives in. With the help of her quirky new friends, she embarks upon a quest to discover the mixture of emotions & colours that make her unique! Anger, jealousy, happiness & many more emotions, join our wonderful characters discovering them all!

The Chit Chat Chalk Show is charming, physical & packed with interaction for children aged 3-8 years & their families. Sitting amongst the set & performers, the children in the audience play an essential part in helping Kiko on her journey.

With a cast of skilled performers, the story dances, draws & giggles its way through from beginning to end. The Chit Chat Chalk Show is sure to put a smile on faces, young & old!

Don’t forget, this interactive show could get a little bit chalky, so please wear suitable clothing!

“A simple, yet completely stunning, energy and action packed performance around a thought provoking and very relevant theme" – Castle Park Primary School, Cumbria 

“It’s great to see the levels of ambition that Hawk Dance Theare and Knotted Project are bringing to the Chit Chat Chalk Show through the creation of a dynamic and compelling new work for young audiences.  The work fuses dance, theatre and participation whilst navigating a complex world of emotions in a genuine attempt to engage the audience in a performance which holds real value whilst blurring boundaries. The energy of the performers is infectious.” – Nina Hajiaani (Action Transport Theatre)
