Wriggle Dance Theatre: Squidge

Sat 12 Mar 2022 | 11am, 2pm

Do you squish or squash, handshake or hug, stretch out or snuggle in like a bug? An immersive interactive experience for children 3 – 8 years and their grown-ups.

Squidge is a truly magical and funny interactive dance show with live music and digital projection, which takes a light-hearted look at our sense of touch and how it influences our everyday lives. At the heart of the piece is a tale of friendship, compromise and how each and every one of us need touch to make us feel alive.

An immersive shared experience to delight children and their grown-ups alike. Interact with the magical light up boxes which enthral and maybe even… tickle!

Squidge is a beautiful sanctuary of space where parents can share some special time with their children.
