Happy Feet Film Screening

Join us for a festive screening of Happy Feet!

Emperor penguins are born to sing. All except young Mumble, who was born to dance… tap dance. Such un-penguin-like behaviour eventually gets Mumble kicked out of Emperor Land and into the big, cold world. Joined by his Adelie Amigos and an all-knowing Rockhopper penguin named Lovelace, Mumble embarks on an epic journey and ultimately proves that by being true to yourself, you can make all the difference in the world!

We love fancy dress, so come along dressed up as your favourite character from the film, or any other fluffy animal!

Channel your inner Mumble and join our Happy Feet tap dancing workshop after the film – no penguins or tap shoes needed, just a bundle of energy!

There will be a 15 minute interval during the film.

Purchase film ticket and workshop and get a free goody bag worth £3.50

Sonic Dancer (Open Sharing)

“Sonic Dancer” is a project devised by dance artist Silvia Carderllli-Gronau and computer scientist Swen Gaudl. Following our experience both on and off screens during the pandemic, Silvia and Swen wanted to investigate how we perceive and interact with each other remotely/online. The result is “Sonic Dancer” – the representation of movement for our eyes and ears.

Silvia and her team invite you to their novel virtual and physical space where you will see professional dancers work with the new technology they have developed.

Suitable for anyone curious about how movement may be represented in sound and vision.

In partnership with ACE, The Studio, Bath Spa University Dance Department, Plymouth University, SWCTN.
