Theatre Performance: Hug The Tree
by Paper Monkey Theatre

Inspired by an old Indian folktale, Hug the Tree takes us on a journey with a group of villagers in The Chipko movement as they stood united in a non-violent protest to save trees from being felled in eco-sensitive regions.

Featuring specially crafted puppets in a dynamic display of sets and props, riddled with infectious delightful tunes, Hug the Tree promises to enchant, enthral and entertain from start to finish.
