The Adventures of The Little Ghost is a new show for young audiences choreographed by Sophie Nüzel with an original soundscore by Seymour Milton. Based on the book The Little Ghost by Ottfried Preussler the piece engages the audience into a magical, immersive world that unfolds before their eyes as soon as they enter the space. The audience sit in-the-round, the show taking place all around them, creating an adventurous and engaged feel as the audience discover new characters and scenes over the course of the event. The piece uses a mix of dance styles including elements of parkour and freerunning.

In a locked chest in a dusty attic of a very old castle lives the Little Ghost. At the stroke of midnight each night the Little Ghost wakes up. He haunts the castle, visits the knights as well as his friend the owl. At the stroke of one, he falls asleep in his chest. His greatest wish is to see the world in daylight, just once. But how can he make his wish come true? And what will the townsfolk make of a ghost in the daytime?

Working with a core cast of 3 professional dancers, a freerunner as well as a young dancer as the Little Ghost, this piece invites a community cast of up to 30 people aged 10–100 years old at each performance venue, providing an intensive artistic experience for each participant. The aim is to engage people of all backgrounds and abilities in a high quality dance experience both as performers as well as audiences.
