PARABLE is an immersive dance theatre and integrated workshop experience, delivered with Covid safety at the forefrontPARABLE provides primary schools with visually exciting and imaginative ways to boost children's engagement with RE. 

Adventurous, interactive and exciting, children will encounter and overcome creative challenges, accomplish tasks and influence the outcome of the performance, whilst absorbed in a vibrant world of professional movement, dance and theatre.   

PARABLE is a curriculum-based interactive performance and workshop that reimagines religious stories, based on the parables that Jesus told. Whilst social distancing, children will: 

  • Take part, watch and learn together. 
  • Accomplish tasks together by working cooperatively  
  • Be part of something and make a difference 
  • Overcome challenges  
  • Encounter and consider moral quandary 

PARABLE covers a core part of the Religious Education Syllabus and is designed to help schools join the dots in pupil’s knowledge of Christianity and an important part of its sacred text.  

"To some young children, their understanding of Jesus is confused – he is born at Christmas and dies three months later at Easter. Some children have little or no knowledge of Jesus’ life and teachings."

Jane Brooke, RE Advisor

The performance workshop helps children experience some of the parables that Jesus told, enabling children to engage and reflect on a source of wisdom and sacred text.  

PARABLE is a great way to ensure depth in the Religious Education curriculum, in line with the new Ofsted criteria. 

"From the first few minutes (of the) workshop I knew that Springs had something special about them. They just had a way of engaging every child with enthusiasm, passion and hard work. It was faultless."

Teacher at St Andrew's School, 2019

PARABLE can be delivered several times throughout a school day for small bubbles of children to be Covid-safe.
