★★★★★  “201 have created a masterpiece of human sensitivity”  - EdFringe Review

★★★★ "A talent to watch" - The Evening Standard

Adapted from Michael Rosen’s award-winning book, Sad Book is a visually inventive, moving story of navigating complex emotions in the midst of everyday life.


In this personal story of loss, a father explores the disconnection between what we feel and what we show, and different ways we deal with sadness.

Sad Book makes the personal universal, retelling the story through dance, and animation with original music.

Developed by 201 and choreographer Andrea Walker, Sad Book is the third production from this dance company described as “a talent to watch” by The Evening Standard.
