The Children's Bookshow



The Children’s Bookshow returns to Curve this October, themed around the award-winning book Little Leap Forward.

Internationally acclaimed musician Guo Yue and his writer wife Clare Farrow collaborated to write a Little Leap Forward, a gentle, lyrical story about friendship and freedom inspired by Yue’s own childhood during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.

Based on their book, Clare and Yue have created a magical hour-long performance that uses a captivating blend of readings, artefacts and live music to tell how Yue grew up in the alleys and courtyards of Beijing. The show is about the power and beauty of words, music, imagination and individual creativity and brings to life a segment of the history of modern China.

Don’t miss this enthralling performance that will leave teachers and children moved and inspired in equal measure. Suitable for children in years 4, 5 and 6.

Running time: 1 hour
