Workshop for ages 2 to 6 with Parent
Be enthralled into the pretend world of Marmalade as Claire Parsons, the choreographer of the dance theatre piece, gives you a taster session to step into the shoes and understand what it is like to be Moa and Viktor, the dancers of the show. Stimulating imagination and poetic movement as you and your little one conjure up what Marmalade can be – a mix of apples and oranges or berries and bananas? By the end of this session, the both of you will be prancing out of the room dancing round like an apple, bouncy like a plum or big like a melon!
