Tract and Touch with Robin Dingemans & Other Birds

Wig Show (near finished preview)

Adults £10 / Children £8

Two voicing dancers. 56 wigs. Giggly, squiggly, wiggly sounds. Oodles of curls. Sounds flow like pearls. Straight, bendy, twisty, twirly. Long, short, up and down.

Our wigs voice us out. And you might echo back! No need to worry – no pretty singing here – as wigs take us on a journey. Sounds and movements – wigs invent them – and you do it too. A joyful romp through how we invent ourselves, as we shift and twist and age and grow. We revel in sculpting our very selves: our voices, our hair, our bodies… For children, their adults, and their singing, zinging hair

Age Recommendation: 3-6yrs and their adults 

Duration: 45 mins

Please Note: This performance is a near finished preview. The show contains occasional loud voices and rapid movements.
