Sponge 2018

Thursday 12 April - Saturday 14 April


Roll, squeeze and pop yourself through a new squashy kind of show, set to a 1970s influenced score, perfect for babies, young children and families.   Shortlisted for the “Best Family Welcome” award in the  Fantastic for Families Awards 2018

In  Sponge at Jabberwocky Market, two friendly dancers guide the participants, revealing small-scale AND large-scale squishy, squashy environments, fascinating in shape, texture and touch.

There’s also the leggy character Splegs, who needs a bit of help walking.

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 more fun to be had after the show.

Turned On Its Head’s first work was co-commissioned by Curve Theatre, their second by The Spark Arts. Turned On Its Head is an Affiliate Company at Curve, Leicester where Liz Clark runs Little Movers, child-led creative dance with children aged 4 months to 4 years and their grown ups.
