Description

Three dancers’ shimmy through the audience weaving a tapestry of sticky tape in this dance performance for young children. They invite you to tape, stick and groove, to see and feel sound or to be still, watch and listen. The Sticky Dance is an interactive, engaging and colourful performance installation for children and their families.   

The Sticky Dance is open for 2 hours for each performance. Please book one of the entrance slots available every 15 minutes.  We recommend you spend approximately 45 minutes in the space, although you can choose to stay for longer or less. The first 2 booking slots at each performance have less audience members in the space, for children who might prefer this.

The Sticky Dance is co-created by Rosie Heafford & Takeshi Matsumoto, with designs by Alison Brown (Scottish Dance Theatre, Barrowland Ballet), and a soundscape by Dinah Mullen (Rachel Mars Forge, Kate Cross/Tim Bell Squirrel).Co-commissioned by The Southbank Centre and The Place, and South East Dance with support by Stanley Arts.

 

Presented as part of The Spark Festival.

Recommended Price: £10

 

What are ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets?

We believe that that arts should be accessible for all. For this reason some of our shows and events this year will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra. You will see multiple prices available for each show or event. You can select whichever price you can afford or would like to pay – thank you.

 

Age Guidance: 3 – 5 years old
