Background

For more than thirty years Polka Theatre has been at the forefront of developing innovative and engaging theatre for children. They now present a new opera, Dot, Squiggle and Rest, in collaboration with The Royal Opera. Joy Haynes, Director of Norwich Puppet Theatre and a regular at Polka Theatre, joins forces again with composer Elspeth Brooke after their acclaimed Star at the mac Birmingham.

Haynes is committed to making theatre for very young children, and uses puppetry to create magical and stimulating worlds. Brooke, a rising star in British contemporary music and an experienced writer for voice and theatre, brings together a strong interest in education with an imaginative use of sound and texture to create inspiring soundscapes.
