otherwise known as ‘The Fiancee of Danger.’

Marie Marvingt was no ordinary woman...born in the hills of Auriallac, France, at the age of fifteen, when her mother died,
she raised her siblings single handedly. She learnt 4 different languages including
Esperanto, got a degree, became a prize-
winning cook, dancer, gymnast, swimmer, fencer, bob-sledder and canoed from Paris to Germany.

However, this wasn’t quite enough. She longed for something more. She longed to fly.

Told through puppetry, story-telling and physical theatre, live accordion and guitar.

This is the greatest true story that history ever forgot.

Suitable for children aged 5-105.
