GRASS FILMS | 'Sunny Days' and 'Insect Hands' - as part of RoolaBoola Children's Arts Season

September 18 @ 12:00 am - September 19 @ 12:00 am

EXPLORE THE WORLD BENEATH YOUR FEET Look down. What are you standing on? Explore the ground and all its wriggling inhabitants in this double bill of quirky dance films. Shot in the great outdoors, both films celebrate the magic of the natural world - rolling in long grass, finding spiders in the park and the warm feeling of the sun on your face. Sunny Days and Insect Hands will inspire you to look a little more closely at the world around you, get moving, get outside and play. Sunny Days (5mins 17secs): Feel, hear & smell the world around you. Roll in the long grass, scrunch it beneath your fingers & take a long deep breath. Sunny Days encapsulates the magic of being free, of moving with abandon, and playing in the outdoors. A dance film for little explorers. Insect Hands (6mins 38secs): Join Takeshi & his animated minibeast friends for a dance in the great outdoors. A dance that invites you to look a little more closely at the world around you. Autumnal blooms, tickly toes & scrunchy leaves inspire you to get outside, get moving, & play. How many insects can you spot? Created by Rosie Heafford, winner of the Arts Foundation Children’s Theatre Shortlist Award. The double bill is accompanied with interactive activities which are available with or without audio description. A series of sensory films offering an additional way to explore the films are available for children who explore the world in a sensory way.

Audience member "Thank you for a glorious dose of nature and joy. ... We love Insect Hands, it was on repeat this morning and has made us all smile." Audience member
