Travelling Light creates outstanding theatre for and with young people that inspires their thinking, engages their emotions and fires their imaginations.  Since 1984 we have sparked the creative journey of over one million children and young people in our locality of Barton Hill , throughout Bristol and beyond.

We create award winning professional touring theatre to allow children, young people and their families equal access to artistic excellence. Our productions tour to theatres, arts centres, festivals, community venues and schools and for many of our audiences seeing one of our shows is their first experience of theatre and can inspire a lifetime’s enjoyment. Our work is nationally and internationally facing, while remaining embedded within our  local community.

Our participation programme offers creative experiences to children and young people in Barton Hill and across Bristol. We believe in every child’s entitlement to creativity and imagination and proactively engage with children and young people who would otherwise have little or no access to arts and cultural activities. Our work includes youth theatre, creative learning projects and family and community engagement.

Travelling Light: Cinderella

Travelling Light’s playful production of  Cinderella  goes down the Grimm route, presenting characters with real problems, real hopes and desires, and real dark undersides. It’s an accessible and often very funny show with enough magic and wonder to keep almost the youngest of kids in thrall, and enough experimentation and new ideas to engage the most cynical of scrooges.

Subtle direction allows the quality of the acting, design and live music to shine through, although it also means that the show takes a while to get going. The characters are slow-burners, but by the time the bird-spotting, sheltered but hugely charismatic Prince Charming has met tom-boy dreamer Ella, the audience is well down the route of caring what happens to them. The wicked stepmother rather lacks wickedness, but her children are fantastic as a hoity-toity little madam and her brother who is forced into drag for the royal ball, being better at acting the ‘suitable match’ than his saccharine sister.

The show’s simple visual design pleasingly complements the themes. Rather than a ‘fairy godmother’ character, Ella spends her time with the birds of the forest, who help her when she is in need. This bird chorus is made up of the rest of the seven-strong cast, dressed in trendy natural chunky knits and owly specs. The effect verges on Gap-advert – but the playful music and movement turn this to comedy and the birds are a very appealing part of the storyline. At the royal ball, the stepmother and siblings parade around in hideous hot pink frilly gowns and bows, a delightful contrast to the careful prince’s beautiful self-designed salmon-pink satin ruffled shirt.

Magical live music is provided by the Bower brothers, and the company sing, dance and interact with the audience with real confidence and a sense of fun. Gentle pantomimic elements deepen the audience’s involvement, and the whole beautifully crafted piece is framed by a simple string of Chinese lanterns that become party lights in the second half for the royal ball. There are clear stylistic comparisons to be made with Kneehigh here, but Travelling Light have some original and imaginative ideas, which is no mean feat when telling a story that, as the show’s programme reminds us, ‘has roots in every corner of the world and has been re-told hundreds, even thousands of times’.

How to navigate the Moscow Metro – a brief guide

travelling light theatre company

The Moscow Metro is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and one of the largest, with 269 stations and counting! Still, no one is immune from standing flummoxed in the middle of the platform not knowing whether to go left or right, or which of six or more exits to take to escape the subterranean maze. Our guide sheds light on some of the finer points, and will definitely make your life in the subway easier.

Floor stickers

These began to appear back in 2014, and are now visible at all the main interchange stations. Huge stickers with arrows on the floor show where you need to go to change line.

travelling light theatre company

The lines are indicated by number and color, with the names written in Russian with English transliteration. For example, the number 7 in a purple circle means the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line; it is the purple line on the Metro map.

The Moscow Metro has over 20 different types of signs, which all complement each other. So if you look at one and are still confused, try looking at another.

Metro signs answer the key question: “Which way should I go?”, and usually show the end station of the line and/or the general direction (northbound, southbound, to the city center, etc.). Some overhead signs show only the line number and the end station; such a scheme is also used in the Paris Metro.

travelling light theatre company

There are also signs on the platform walls, which tend to be more detailed. They tell you which direction the train is headed and which stations it will stop at. The station you are currently at is marked with a rectangle in the color of the line, and all others are listed in order from top to bottom.

travelling light theatre company

All sign information is duplicated in English: names of Metro stations in lobbies, on platforms, and in rail cars are all shown in Latin script. Stations in rail cars are also announced in two languages, Russian and English. And ticket windows with English-speaking staff are marked with the sticker “We speak English!”.

How to find the right exit

Many stations have several exits. One of the busiest central stations, Kitai Gorod, has no fewer than 15! But numbers, stands, and wall guides will help you out of the labyrinth without needing a ball of string.

Locals often use subway exits as geographical markers. For example, they might say “Let’s meet by the exit at Solyanka.” But for tourists this might not be very helpful. That said, maps showing the local area and main sights are available at exits (not all), or on round colorful stands in station lobbies and on platforms:

travelling light theatre company

But since all exits are numbered, it’s best to be guided by the exit numbers.

There is often an overhead sign at exits listing the nearby sights, streets, shopping malls, and other reference points.

And on platform and lobby walls, you can see more stickers with bus, tram, and trolleybus numbers, showing the way to public transport stops.

Meeting place

The traditional meeting place in the Moscow Metro is   v tsentre zala   ("the platform center"). But recently, special stickers with the words   Mesto vtrechi   ("Meeting place") have appeared, making it easier to find one other.

travelling light theatre company

Mobile apps

Some stations have a stand with a Metro map in the center of the platform and by the ticket windows in the lobby. But these days, the best way to navigate the branchy subway system is via a mobile app. Armed with one, you can work out the fastest route from A to B, calculate the journey time, see all available transfers and ground transport stops, and get notifications about temporary closures of stations and exits, etc.

Cinderella - a Fairytale (2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016)

Meet the cast, about the show.

When Ella’s mother dies, she is brought up by her devoted and loving father who teaches her the names and calls of the woodland birds that surround their home. But when her father marries again, Ella’s peaceful life is turned upside down by a host of new and unpleasant relations. It appears her only allies are the feathered friends who roost in the trees, but they are no ordinary birds...

Our 40th original production was our third co-production with Tobacco Factory Theatres.  We returned to the origins of the Cinderella story in order to create a new version of one of the oldest, best loved fairytales of all time.  Audiences packed the theatre and the show had rave reviews.

In 2012 we took the show to the brand new St James’ Theatre where it was nominated for an Olivier Award.  In 2013 we took it to the Unicorn Theatre where it won an Off West End Award (Offie) for Best Show for Children & Young People.   The show continued to get fantastic reviews, and by this time 34,000 people had seen it. For Christmas 2015 Cinderella: A Fairytale delighted new audiences at mac Birmingham, before returning to Tobacco Factory Theatres for Christmas 2016, where it broke box office records.

In total, the contract between Elemash Magnit LLC (an enterprise of TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom in Elektrostal, Moscow region) and Red Wind B.V. (a joint venture of NovaWind JSC and the Dutch company Lagerwey) foresees manufacturing and supply over 200 sets of magnets. One set is designed to produce one power generator.

“The project includes gradual localization of magnets manufacturing in Russia, decreasing dependence on imports. We consider production of magnets as a promising sector for TVEL’s metallurgical business development. In this regard, our company does have the relevant research and technological expertise for creation of Russia’s first large-scale full cycle production of permanent rare-earth magnets,” commented Natalia Nikipelova, President of TVEL JSC.

“NovaWind, as the nuclear industry integrator for wind power projects, not only made-up an efficient supply chain, but also contributed to the development of inter-divisional cooperation and new expertise of Rosatom enterprises. TVEL has mastered a unique technology for the production of magnets for wind turbine generators. These technologies will be undoubtedly in demand in other areas as well,” noted Alexander Korchagin, Director General of NovaWind JSC.
