29 September - 2 October

Presented by AWESOME Festival in association with PICA

Help Valentine as she searches for her heart.

Valentine is a clown and her best friend is her heart. She loves to spend time with her Grandpa, but Grandpa’s heart is running out of time, and there is nothing Valentine can do about it. Valentine is determined to be strong, not to fall apart, but in doing so she loses her heart. With a big empty world ahead of her, the audience helps Valentine on a journey to search for her heart, as she learns to embrace her emotions – even the painful ones.

Like a story book that comes to life before your eyes, Valentine combines shadow puppetry, animation and physical theatre to create a visually spectacular show. Designed for families and children, Valentine is an honest, playful and interactive show about what it means to love and lose somebody.
