The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion

“A long time ago, In the Kingdom of Candy, a lion once roamed the streets...

Howled on the hour, whined on the minute, roared every second day of the year.”

At Christmas 2015 we took a trip to Pixel Valley, a magical world filled with positive vibes, colourful, mixed up characters and badminton.  

We went on an adventure with Polar Pear, Sledgehog, Cheffyl and the larger than life insatiable, inflatable Candylion… what became of life in the valley when negative vibes took over the town?

Musicians and actors collided in this immersive production that blurred the line between a theatre show and sing-a-long live music gig, inspired by Gruff Rhys’ (Super Furry Animals) seminal album, Candylion.

In December 2015, we worked with learners from Ocean Park Academy, Splott, who created a behind-the-scenes film about our Christmas production, The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion.

Please enjoy the end result – we are so impressed as the learners researched, filmed and edited the entire film themselves.
