Face 2 Face


As co-founder of Tangere Arts, Ava was responsible for commissioning shows for young audiences. Funded by Arts Council England, Face 2 Face was a full mask piece which toured to Nurseries and Key Stage One Primary Schools throughout Derbyshire and also performing at Leicester Comedy Festival.

Face to Face told the story of a young boy who is obsessed with Spiderman and what happens to him one day at school. Face2Face is a lively show using mask, strong visual imagery, and music that brings together an exciting collection of fun and playful characters who negotiate new relationships and run into difficulties along the way! 

Face 2 Face was a playful piece that explored relationships and resolving conflict.  Ava Hunt Theatre always has theatre for young audiences at the heart of its work and practice, especially that for 3-6 year olds.

  • Face2Face is a play entirely without words and an audience of children were very tickled by its performance. It is very absorbing, very funny and done on the simplest of sets. The Stage (24 June 2004)
