5. Family Event: The Thought Machine

12 October 2019, 10:30am - 11:15am

A magical Thought Machine lets us use our imagination to go anywhere… Dynamic singer-pianist ensemble Songspiel, together with hand shadowgrapher Drew Colby, introduce a range of weird and wistful characters from anxious Viking warriors to the superhero Hamster Man. With music by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, poetry by Kate Wakeling from her award-winning collection Moon Juice, and hand-formed shadow backdrops, this is a fun, participatory event for young people aged 6-11.

A hand shadow workshop follows on from the performance at 11.45 (booking essential).
