The Little Fawn Caravan - Sokobauno Theatre - Sat 2 April 2016 -2998 (photographer - Andy Catlin

The Little Fawn Caravan is a self contained theatre space which can be used for two performances, with a workshop being brought indoors. Please chack venue listings to find out which performances and workshops might be visiting you!

The Little Fawn adopt miniature theatre techniques, shadow cuts and original music to help re-imagine this classic of fairy-tales. For this new show the interior of the caravan is transformed into a magical forest environment creating a special immersive experience for our audiences from the moment they enter the space.

Our version is taken from one of the earliest iterations of the story, with new characters and some unfamiliar twists. As well as original music written for clarinet and percussion The little Fawn have also explored new paper theatre techniques and animated shadow sequences to create a visually rich experience.

The Little fawn Caravan was created by Shane Connolly Artistic Director of Sokobauno Puppet and Object Theatre in 2012. Since his graduation in Puppet Theatre Arts in 2002, Shane has worked as a designer, maker, actor, puppeteer, performer and professional musician. Sokobauno have collaborated with many theatre companies throughout the UK and Ireland and Shane is a regular performer for Norwich Puppet Theatre and Upfront Puppet Theatre, Penrith. In 2015 The Little Fawn travelled to Europe’s largest puppetry festival, the caravan tours regularly at UK puppet festivals and various community and cultural events internationally.

“The highlight for me was The Little Fawn Caravan. Not just because it is a wonderfully intimate space in which to view a performance. Shane Connolly’s two shows were masterpieces!”
