Once upon a time: 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'
The story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf' is told using interpretive dance. A Shepherd is watching his sheep. He tries to count them. But they won’t stand still and he’s getting very bored. He comes up with a game to attract the villager’s attention. He shouts ‘wolf!!” and when they hear his cry they drop everything and come running. When they get to the field they soon realise there is no wolf. They go back to the village. The boy does the same again and shouts ‘wolf!!”. This time the villagers come a little slower, and are annoyed again to find there is no wolf. When a real wolf appears and chases the boy he cries out, but the villagers think it’s just a game and do not come to his rescue, so the wolf gets a decent meal!
