For children aged 3 - 6, La-di-DaDa is a 360 degree interactive light and shadow experience.

Press and Quotes

"La-di-DaDa is a fantastical theatre piece Children actually stared in astonishment, clambering to take a closer look at the final display of shadow puppetry. Looking at my theatre companion sat with her mouth hung open, only able to utter the word 'wow!' was more than enough for me to say that Quicksilver have done it again, unpatronising, fantastical and humorous theatre delivered with real professionalism. La-di-DaDa is going to be a real treat for all the family." Samiat Pedro, Arts Hub, 2008

"for children, the fun of taking part, and receiving a going-home present to boot, ensure its image will be imprinted on their consciousness once theyÂ’ve tumbled out of the tent" Ronnie Haydon, Time Out, 2008
