Adults and young people alike are invited by the Infanta, the Spanish princess, to her twelfth birthday party. This is the only day of the year she is allowed to play with other children, but mixing with those not of her own rank comes at a price.

Adapted from the bittersweet story by Oscar Wilde and performed in Trestle’s unique physical style, The Birthday of the Infanta captures a transitional moment of choice when the heart could melt or freeze.

Drawing on the passion and rhythms of Spain, Trestle Unmasked takes you on a compelling journey, through the constraints of social hierarchies to the price paid for love.

Suitable for ages 9+
