The Chit Chat Chalk Show is a magical chalky adventure! Kiko is a shy, reserved and confused young girl, struggling to make sense of everything. With the help of a quirky pair of guides, she embarks on a quest to discover the mixture of emotions and colours that make her unique! The Chit Chat Chalk Show is charming, physical and packed with interaction for children aged 4-8 years, and their families. The story dances, draws and giggles its way through from beginning to end and is sure to put a smile on faces, young and old!

Created in partnership and collaboration with The Knotted Project, we present our first touring children's theatre production. The piece is suitable for theatre touring, schools touring and festival performances. 

Funded by Arts Council England.

“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)
