Award winning choreographer Jasmin Vardimon returns to Sadler’s Wells this autumn with her adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Pinocchio.
Based on the original book by Collodi and performed by Jasmin Vardimon’s multi-talented dancers, Pinocchio will bring to life the famous marionette as he embarks on a fantastic journey to become a human boy.
Showcasing Vardimon’s uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, Pinocchio combines physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance to examine the idea of what it means to be human. With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour, Pinocchio will take audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery through this timeless and beloved fable.

He’s watched by a man with a walking stick who wears a flat cap and red carpenter’s apron. In the background, there’s a white tent with a trestle table inside. Yellow wooden chairs hang in the space behind.
