Tin Man

Joss Arnott Dance

Joss Arnott Dance presents a magical new retelling of a classic story, seen through the rusty eyes of the Tin Man and their journey to finding their heart and happiness.

This visually stunning dance production for families and children aged 7+ explores a re-imagined story of this much-loved character’s encounters with the Witch in the deep dark wood, and the new friendships the Tin Man forms with a Scarecrow and a Lion along the way.

Told with brilliant humour and touching pathos, TIN MAN entertains both children and adults alike with its enchanting storytelling, dramatic choreography, stunning costume and lighting designs, all accompanied by newly commissioned music by award-winning composer Anna Appleby.
Join us 30 minutes before the show and get creative with free TIN MAN colouring-in activity. After the show, don’t miss the chance to meet the cast and characters and get your picture taken with Tin Man, Lion and the Witch!

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, the Royal Philharmonic Society with funding from the RPS Drummond Fund and PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund for Organisations.

Co-commissioned by DanceEast, Swindon Dance, Pavilion Dance South West and Kala Sangam. Supported by the University of Sheffield Enable US Project and the University of Salford.
