Fuel presents The Forest 

Created by Fevered Sleep

A thrilling performance for children aged 5 and over.

The creators of Brilliant and And the Rain Falls Down present The Forest, a treat that excited the imagination and tickled the senses… a thrilling, surprising, and enchanting performance that explored the landscape of the forest through music, dance, light, and sound.

The Forest was an intelligent piece of contemporary dance theatre that took place within an exquisite set, full of real trees.

Commissioned by Lyric Hammersmith. Research supported by Sadler’s Wells.

""The Forest treats its audience with respect and intelligence, recognising that small doesn’t have to mean small-minded or obvious. The show is like a beautiful object that is constantly assembled and reassembled by its playful cast." "

The Guardian

""Exquisite…It’s like a dream of a night in a forest. There’s a grace to this show that captivated and moved me." "

The Times

""A beguiling show that draws on small children’s capacity to play." "
