Mixed Up the film is an energetic, colourful and creative expression of hip-hop dance and street art which explores the mixed-up feelings that children have been experiencing through these turbulent times.

Originally planned to be a live performance in school playgrounds, ongoing restrictions turned Mixed Up into an exciting, adrenaline filled film with interactive elements that can be taken back to the classroom. As part of the Mixed Up experience, schools receive a box of surprise art materials and guidance on how to use them, alongside the performance film and a series of workshops led by the artists. After watching the film, children are encouraged to get creative in the playground.

On the second weekend of Family Encounters we are offering families a chance to watch the performance film for free to give you a flavour of the show.
