Classics for Juniors 2021: Walking the Amazon

Adapted from Walking the Amazon by Ed Stafford

British Explorer Ed Stafford is the first to walk the entire length of the mighty Amazon from its Andes springs to its Atlantic mouth. Ed soldiers on, despite innumerable challenges from wildlife and people, including native tribes and even after his native guides desert him. Finally he meets a guide and friend and they stumble on against reason, suffering starvation and sickness until they reach the end of the Amazon. This is the story of a man who motivates himself to keep to his commitment despite physical and mental exhaustion for two and a half years.

Eight trained Physical Theatre actors reenact Ed Stafford’s journey, scaling mountains and ploughing through impenetrable forests. The magic of physical theatre transforms improvised props and minimal set into foliage and landscapes right before your eyes as the story unfolds.
