“We are all connected, we all share the same hopes, fears and dreams”
The Princess and the Chickpea is an exciting new collaboration between Nutkhut and Cirque Bijou for festivals and outdoor spaces, co-commissioned by Bula Festival, Camp Bestival Shropshire and Newcastle Mela.
The reimagining of the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale classic, transports us to 16th century Mughal India, where dreams transport intergenerational audiences into technicolour.

Following a decade of collaboration and pushing the boundaries of outdoor circus, theatre and parades, Nutkhut and Cirque Bijou reunite with this new family show. Drawing on a range of theatrical techniques and styles with a modern twist and a sprinkling of humour.
