The Velveteen Rabbit was the most popular of Margery Williams children’s books, and focuses on the importance of friendship, love and the discovery of what is real. Dancers bring to life this renowned story of a boy and his love for a stuffed rabbit which eventually comes to life. Choreographer Kathleen Rea has created a fairytale work which she hopes will teach children that it is what’s on the inside of you that matters the most.
