About Edinburgh International Festival: Hocus Pocus
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Philippe Saire Company / A work for families
A spellbinding spectacle for children from seven years old and their families, Hocus Pocus weaves together dance, theatre, visual art and bewitching lighting to tell a wondrous story of how bravery and confidence can overcome darkness and fear.
A spider’s web; a warrior in chainmail; a mysterious creature from the deep: all emerge from a magical window of light – to tell the story of two young men and their dream-like adventures together.
With just two dancers, masks, costumes and bizarre objects, Hocus Pocus conveys a universal tale of courage and wisdom, through miraculous stage images and a sumptuous musical score based around Grieg’s evocative Peer Gynt suites.
Hocus Pocus is created by Lausanne-based choreographer Philippe Saire, creator of more than 30 stage works. It is a bewitching creation of sensation and imagination.
For children age 7+
Contains smoke effects
