Dance & Design Summer Performance Project

Dance & Design Summer Performance Project

Aged 8-11 years?

Join us for a week-long creative adventure working with a team of amazing artists. Develop your skills in dance, performance, art and design – just 15 places available!

You will work with choreographer and dancer, Marie Forbes, and artist and designer, Rebecca Child, to create your own outdoor performance amongst the trees and nature of the Barn Theatre and Museum.

The project is inspired by professional woodland show Look Up Look Out created by Sophie Nüzel which will be performed in St Helen’s Woods on 26 & 27 August. The sculptures you make over the week, will become part of the set for this show.

Performance for friends and family at 2pm on Friday 25 August
