Puppetry geniuses Pickled Image return to The Met with their latest stunning show for children aged 5 years and over.

Yana arrives all alone in a remote snow-bound village, surrounded by dense forest. She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy…

Featuring exquisite music, Arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is a funny and poignant tale of a child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes.


Read more about the show in this review by Rosemary Waugh at The Stage:

“Yana is abandoned in the forest, where she meets a friendly, vegetarian baby Yeti who has lost his blankey. They pair bond over the universal language of fart jokes…  The deaf-friendly story is told through mime, puppetry and an invented language that mashes together an assortment of European languages… it is instantly understandable despite the made-up words.

Both Yana and the Yeti are outsiders, but both end up with a friend.”
