Edinburgh Fringe Preview: Poggle, Dance Base



Natasha Gilmore’s Barrowland Ballet have a reputation for making family-friendly work for little ‘uns that adults can enjoy too. Tiger is one such example of a recent success, a show that transcends age groups and genres.This time, they have teamed up in collaboration with Macrobert Arts Centre to bring back the popular tale of Poggle to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Vince doesn’t like the forest- in fact, he is pretty scared. Until, that is, he meets a magical creature called Poggle, who teaches him the ways of the land.With a visually stunning set design which has building blocks and big surprises, it promises “live music, clapping rhythms and high energy dance”.
