Unsettled presents...

As part of GENFest 2024...

A piece inspired by Philip Pullman’s short story, ‘Clockwork’. White snow sweeps down from the mountain tops of the Neuchstein region, freezing over the valleys and the hearts of all the people that live within it. At the foot of the tallest peak live the inhabitants of Brutzenvien and their King. Through this everlasting stone-cold ice age, the King’s son soon falls ill and the King makes a pledge to do all in his power to save his heir. But how far will he go? This show is a rollercoaster of EPIC adventure into this enchanted world. Unsettled Theatre showcases their 50-minute live performance of The Untold Fable of Fritz, using puppetry, live music and physical theatre. “This is a fable about a boy. A fable is a short story that illustrates a moral lesson. The moral here… Well, you’ll see for yourself.” The only way to describe this show is if Narnia, Monty Python and Tim Burton were a 45-minute play … with puppets.

Please note whilst everything at GENFest is FREE, we do ask that you book as there is limited capacity.

GENFest 2024: The Untold Fable of Fritz

Sat 29 June


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
