Event description

Description

Poppy’s paper moon sails over a cardboard sea. The moonlight is beautiful, shining across her bedroom floor as she dozes off. Poppy wakes up to discover that someone has switched off the moonlight! She notices, that in all the commotion, the MoonMoo (the cow that jumped over the moon) has got stuck on the Moon! Poppy’s mission is clear! She calls upon her friends in the audience to rescue the MoonMoo and switch the light back on! Poppy trains the audience at Astronaut School where they build paper rockets to get to space. 5-4-3-2-1-BLAST OFF! But, all is not as it seems! Join Poppy as she launches across the canvas sky in a race against time to discover who switched off the light! A story about space, environment, climate change and sustainability.

The audience are encouraged to take part in various sections of the show and get out of their seats to dance alongside the cast.

A Day to Play is the perfect mix of performance by professional dancers with an interactive workshop designed for all the family to take part in (even the grown-ups!) Each session is led by professional dancers and our award winning director and first ever Artist in Residence at BBC Radio 2, Thomas Small.

Each month, in partnership with brilliant cultural organisations in Dundee, we present brand new versions of our critically acclaimed productions that have toured the world, in the coolest locations! A Day to Play allows children and young people to be adventurous and explore creativity alongside expert pro dancers.

The sessions help children and young people to develop their self-confidence through a range of stimulating exercises and encourage problem solving and collaboration with others. From the moment you arrive at A Day to Play until the moment you leave, you are immersed in new, exciting worlds!

A Day to Play is intergenerational so they are suitable for children and young people from the age of 2 to 16 and we would LOVE for families to come along too and either join in the playtime with a creative adventure with your kids or just sit back and watch the show. Carers, grannies, aunties and best pals are all welcome - the more the merrier! You don't need ANY experience to enjoy A Day to Play so come give it a whirl.

No workshop is ever the same and there is NOTHING else like this in Dundee! So, come spend a magical Sunday afternoon with Shaper/Caper! Check out our first three performance workshops below! Looking for something for adults? Check out The Shaper/Caper Social Club here!



This workshop takes place on Sunday 21st January 2018 2pm to 3pm at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum as part of The People’s Story celebrating McManus 150, the 150th anniversary of the The McManus and is FREE!

All our previous A Day To Play events have sold out so book now so you don’t miss out!!
