Polarbear makes things up; stories, jokes, adventures – a master maker-upper. But where did it all begin?

Mouth Open Story Jump Out is about the moment that started it all, and how one little decision set off a chain reaction that changed his life forever. International assassins, secret codes, dog eating boa constrictors and much more fill the hole left when a father disappears and a boy discovers a talent for telling tales.

A vivid and absorbing show about the craft of storytelling that looks at how language is crafted to shape meaning by one of the UK’s most exciting spoken word artists, Polarbear.
