The Adventures of Isabel: A Day To Play
Sun 12 March 2017, 14:00 – 15:15 GMT
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!
The next workshop takes place on Sunday 12th March 2pm to 3.15pm 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!
This adventure follows the exciting escapades of the frightfully fearless Isabel as she embarks on an epic adventure, encountering four fearsome foes along the way.
Audiences are welcomed into Isabel’s garden, to sit in the flower beds (raised panels that reveal treasures throughout the show). This world is transformed through Isabel’s imagination, and the audience join her on this journey. The performance is an epic voyage through different worlds and landscapes – water, forest and circus – as Isabel faces many challenges, confronts her fears and learns about her emerging independence. The audience are encouraged to take part in various sections of the show and get out of their seats to dance alongside the cast.
