Perle by Thomas Eccleshare


Perle is a poignant and comic show told by one performer and his television through a bold mixture of cartoon and live action. Based on one of the oldest poems in English by the Gawain poet, Perle tells the story of a young father coming to terms with loss. This new version reimagines the classic text as a live comic book using animation and illustrations by Serge Seidlitz, mime and an original electronic soundtrack.

Thomas Eccleshare is the Verity Bargate Award-winning writer of Pastoral (Soho Theatre and HighTide Festival Theatre). He has been nominated for the 2013 Off West End Awards as Most Promising New Playwright. Dancing Brick are Thomas Eccleshare and Valentina Ceschi. They make intrepid, bold visual theatre and have been nominated for two Total Theatre Awards, won the Arches Brick Award and the Guardian’s Best of the Fringe and toured across the world. For ages 10+.
