Ten Sorry Tales

ballo arthur pita

Based on the book by Mick Jackson, Ten Sorry Tales presents a collection of modern-day fables.

From the child who sleeps for fifteen years, to the sinister sisters who prey on trespassers, to the boy who brings butterflies back to life, Jackson’s tales are by turns moving and macabre, funny and dark.

Beautifully eccentric, infused with gothic charm, Ten Sorry Tales will steal you away on a journey of curiosity.

In this new commission by Dance East and Sadler’s Wells, Ten Sorry Tales follows the success of Pita’s critically-acclaimed Metamorphosis (The Linbury, Royal Opera House), The Little Match Girl (DanceEast, Sadler’s Wells), The World’s Greatest Show (DanceEast, Royal Opera House) and Stepmother/Stepfather (DanceEast, The Place).

The production premiered at DanceEast in December 2019.
