LOO

Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive on afternoons.

The show is a poetic exploration of the changes this wind can cause: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands and jungles, leaving ships buried in sandy oceans, unable to sail. Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects, to give its audience a first-hand experience of how and why the Loo blows.

 

“A spectacle without words, minimalist, poetic and of extraordinary beauty.”

RECCOMANA.CAT ON ARTICA

Here I am - Self Portrait workshop

A visual arts workshop where children will create their own self-portrait to be digitised and hung.

This workshop demonstrates the complexity of children’s self-expression and cultural plurality. It explores themes of self-reflection, diversity, multiplicity and community as well as building fundamental skills in self-portraiture and watercolours. 

TODDLERS ROOM

This beautiful piece of mini dance theatre has been created by choreographer Siri Dybwik to appeal to our youngest audiences.

Set inside a white dome the children and their carers will immediately become involved in a play without words where gorgeous sculptural objects, sounds, and beautiful costumes are the stimulus for a truly magical experience.

One child (0-3 years) together with an adult are welcome to the dome.

Dybwikdans is touring worldwide with their work for the youngest one. They are totally dedicated to this art form. Their performances is based on an empathic practice where the togetherness is of great importance.

AIR PLAY

New York’s Air Play merges circus and street theatre performance art with sculptural artistry.

Air Play is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal world, transforming ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.

“A winning combination of visually stunning sculptures and cheeky but heartfelt storytelling that keeps both adults and children enthralled.”
