Turned on Its Head: Sponge

Turned on Its Head: Sponge


Commissioned and produced by Big Imaginations. Co-commissioned by Spark Arts for children.

Roll, squeeze and pop yourself through a new malleable kind of family dance show, set to a 1970s-influenced score, perfect for babies, young children and families. Sponge is about all things spongy, a child’s ability to soak information up like a sponge and the squishy, squashy texture that fascinates children and adults alike.

Dance company Turned On Its Head makes exciting participatory theatre for early years, taking children on a creative journey, engaging audiences throughout its performances and encouraging lots of family interaction. Everything in Sponge can be made with simple materials at home so there’s plenty more fun to be had after leaving the theatre.

Co-produced in association with The Spark Arts for Children.  Produced with thanks to Attenborough Arts, Curve and Sydney Heath.

Performance for babies aged from 6 months to children under 4 and their grown-ups.
Running Time: 45 – 50 mins
