What on earth is under your feet?

Explore the ground and all of its wriggling inhabitants in this quirky dance show for young children.  Performed on real turf, Grass is a sensory and gently interactive show featuring worms, snails, spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing and plenty of obscure insect-related facts. Weaving together performance, puppetry and projection, watch the dancers delve down into the world beneath our feet whilst breathing in the scent of freshly-cut grass.

Grass aims to inspire children to look closely at the world around them, get moving, get mucky and play!  Join us for a special session after the show to ‘Stay and Play’ with some of the set which is filled with sand, soil, vegetables to dig and small insects to find. 

Grass is supported by the East Midlands Children’s Theatre and Dance Network  and co-investment from Pavilion Dance South West, Gulbenkian, Dance Village at Bristol Harbour Festival, Stratford Circus, South East Dance and Surrey Dance Partnership.
