Looking For Yoghurt On The Road!

Looking For Yoghurt On The Road!

Looking For Yoghurt, a funny and touching play inspired by the imagination and wisdom of children will be on tour this May. The play returns following its world premiere at The REP in Spring 2009 and a well-received tour of Korea and Japan in 2010.

A theatrical treat for children aged 6+, Looking For Yoghurt follows the adventures of a young girl Norang, who meets two other children whilst looking for her friend, a stray cat called Yoghurt. Together they explore a strange, shadowy enchanted world.

The show is a unique collaboration between performers and artists from the UK, Japan and Korea, bringing their cultures, skills and languages together. Featuring energetic physical performances, original live music and comic invention this funny and moving play is inspired by children’s imagination, their fears for the world and their hopes for a brighter future.

The cast features three actors from the UK, Japan and Korea – Daniel Naddafy, Yudai Kano, Young Ju Park – plus a musician from Japan, Ayako Kaihatsu. Directed by Peter Wynne-Willson, with design by Yeon Choi, Costume Design by So Young Park, Lighting by Simon Bond and Music by Ohiro Minato.

The production is an international collaboration with Korea’s Joyful Theatre, Japan’s Kijimuna Fest, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Hanyong Theatre.
