A Magical Performance Parade!
Made for and by the people of Leicester.

An exciting guest from a far away land has come to visit us right here in Leicester, and it is our special mission to show them around! As we proudly show off the sights, sounds and smells of our world, our new friend happily regales us with tales of theirs. We journey through the streets together in a cloud of colour and music, we bond, intertwine and are forever connected. 

The Visitor is a  spectacular journey through the streets of Leicester. Made in collaboration with community groups based in the city from all backgrounds with no previous experience of performance.
