Emmanuel Bajiiji with Flare Productions presents

Candy Floss

From snowy skies and meat pies, to brass bands and strange lands, writer and performer Emmanuel Bajiiji uses physical theatre, comedy and storytelling to reflect on life in his new town, in a new country, on a new continent.

A love letter to Oldham, packaged in a funny, heart-warming one-man show.

“Could candy floss fall from the sky in Oldham? Yes. And what a beautiful sight it was!”  

Emmanuel Bajiiji has worked as a writer and performer in varied settings including theatre, healthcare, and education, facilitating creative writing workshops and storytelling in schools, universities, community organisations, and businesses.

Candy Floss is a new Push 2021 commission from HOME. Supported by Arts Council England, Sheba Arts, Oldham Theatre Workshop and Global Link.
