NOS Three presents
FRIENDLY EVER AFTER
NOSThree, a collective of three Brazilian artists, bring their distinctive blend of physical theatre and clowning to Bath Fringe in Friendly Ever Afetr a funny and interactive duo show about friendship and all its beautiful discoveries.
Accomplished Brazilian physical theatre performers Bianca Bertalot and Maria de Jesus Rocha present their duo show FRIENDLY EVER AFTER at the Mission Theatre on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2018. A story of two young clowns trying to find true friendship. When fate unites them, they realise that cultivating a new friendship is not an easy job, particularly at this early stage of their lives. They discover together the beauty of friendship and the need to respect, help and understand one’s friend. Between the many jokes, arguments, disputes and amusing moments, they realise with the help of the young audience that friendship can be deeper and more rewarding if they simply start to act with genuine kindness, tolerance and empathy with one another.
FRIENDLY EVER AFTER is an examination of childhood friendships and a portrayal of children’s early social experiences. It has been developed and produced for 5 to 12-year-old children, using professional theatre clown techniques which uses physical theatre rather than verbal language. This helps stimulating the children’s creativity and imagination and makes them consciously aware of their own social experiences.
“Such an imaginative show! The children were totally absorbed and laughed throughout. The theme of friendship was very useful to trigger conversations about the play in the classroom” Teacher at Stoke Park Primary School, Bristol.
