AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Helena and the Journey of the Hello" is a kid's picture book tale in a crossed line conversation with contemporary times. The old world charm of the illustrated story is given a theatrical twist as unexpected parts of the set and costumes open like pages in a book. Children and adults are amazed at what is possible with a mobile phone, a coat and an old iron bed as they are taken on the Journey of the Hello.

The audience sit inside the fantasy world of Helena Bugosi. And what a world this is! Helena's mum is always on the phone - because she lives in it. Helena's father went into the forest and befriended the foxes, before getting into a small boat and going out to sea, leaving Helena to sing songs by the side of the road.'
