The Atomic Crab

The Atomic Crab

The Atomic Crab was created for the Manchester Day celebrations of 2013 and was also performed for a second time at Stockport's Teenage Market. The theme for Manchester Day 2013 was 'Wish you were here', capturing the promise and excitement that Manchester held for the coming years. Developed with home educating families, 

Sophie's team reimagined Manchester in the year 3000, when rising sea levels have transformed the city into a seaside town. A troupe of pierrots parade along the Deansgate Promenade singing 'I do like to be beside the seaside' with their star seaside attraction: The Atomic Crab. A giant hermit crab who has made its home in a nuclear bomb. This is dangerous entertainment!
