The Work Room presents Pioneers of Performance: We are the Monsters (Colette Sadle)
A day of quality dance for all ages, curated by the Work Room, a dance development company from Glasgow. 35mins | Age guide: 4-9
No two people - or monsters - are exactly the same! Come along and meet some scratchy, shimmering creatures and multi-coloured mini monsters, playing and interacting with one another, their arms and legs moving in strange and impossible ways. We Are the Monsters is a humorous dance performance for children, that seeks to portray and discover the monster hiding in all of us!
Followed by a workshop for children aged 4-9, using movement, live music, images and props to explore what makes us all different. (Booking required)
