Tales of The Mesmerist will whisk audiences away in to another world, an enchanted forest where creatures wander, appearing from the shadows to take you on a magical journey of adventure, mischief and friendship. At times comedic, at others poignant, this family-friendly show explores the importance of support and sparking light in each other’s lives. This commission is the latest chapter in the story of Northern Rascals’ original dance theatre work ‘The Mesmerist’, created especially for this unique outdoor setting as part of the festival.

Northern Rascals is a multi-disciplinary company created with the idea of taking thought-provoking dance theatre to a variety of audiences, amalgamating different art forms to create a fully immersive experience for audiences.
