Queenie is a Traveller girl with a wild imagination. She dreams of exploring the world as a famous dancer and musician, telling tales of traveller folk through her talents. Unfortunately for Queenie, her parents don’t approve.  Little does she know, a shape-shifting Pooka is trapped in the trailer – and this mischievous faerie has plans for an adventure.

This mesmerising tale uses dance, music and object theatre to capture the imaginations of big and little kids alike. With heartfelt insight into Gypsy Traveller culture and lifestyles, Queenie and the Pooka is a story of
acceptance and following your heart.

Produced by Spin Arts, directed by Carlos Pons Guerra and co-choreographed by Pons Guerra and Keira Martin
