The Chit Chat Chalk Show follows Kiko, a confused young girl, struggling to understand how she feels about the strange new world she lives in. With the help of her quirky new friends, she embarks upon a quest to discover the mixture of emotions & colours that make her unique!

The Chit Chat Chalk Show is charming, physical & packed with interaction for children aged 3-8 years & their families. Sitting amongst the set & performers, the children in the audience play an essential part in helping Kiko on her journey. With a cast of skilled performers, the story dances, draws & giggles its way through from beginning to end. The Chit Chat Chalk Show is sure to put a smile on faces, young & old!



"They’re tricky things, feelings, but perhaps never more so than when you’re young. The Chit Chat Chalk Show is a sensitive, interactive, well-crafted exploration of emotions – how they make up who we are, how we can embrace and regulate them – complete with dance, audience participation, and – of course – chalk drawing." –  Children's Theatre Reviews.

“It’s great to see the levels of ambition that Hawk Dance Theatre and The Knotted Project are bringing to The Chit Chat Chalk Show through the creation of a dynamic and compelling new work for young audiences. The work fuses dance, theatre and participation whilst navigating a complex world of emotions in a genuine attempt to engage the audience in a performance which holds real value whilst blurring boundaries. The energy of the performers is infectious.” – Nina Hajiyianni (Artistic Director, Action Transport Theatre)
