A Battersea Arts Centre Production, conceived and created by Polarbear


Polarbear makes things up; stories, jokes, adventures – a master maker-upper. But where did it all begin? Mouth Open, Story Jump Out is about the moment that started it all, and how one little decision set off a chain reaction that changed his life forever. International assassins, secret codes, dog eating boa constrictors and much more fill the hole left when a father disappears and a boy discovers a talent for telling tales.
Polarbear is one of the UK’s leading spoken word artists. His vibrant and interactive storytelling show will invite children to become part of the tale.

“Polarbear, raconteur extraordinaire…With just a few words, you can be transformed from a geek into a hero on a whim.”

-Irish Times
