Free: Summer Family Day | Puppetry & Conducting Workshop For Send Children And Families

SUNDAY 30 JUNE - 12:30 PM

This workshop is designed for children with additional needs and their families. The workshop is open to any child that has physical or learning disabilities, sensory differences and their siblings. It will be a small group setting indoors. If you feel that this workshop will suit your child’s needs, please book – no questions asked!

Ever wondered what a conductor does in front of an orchestra? How do their body movements relate to the sound the musicians are making? What aspects of the music are they trying to communicate?

Join musicians from the University of Southampton, puppeteers from Dotted Line Theatre and puppet Pythagoras to explore music conducting. During the workshop you’ll create a paper puppet, and then help to conduct some of the strange, wonderful music from our show ‘Pythagoras’ Toolkit’!

Supported by University of Southampton Centre for Music Education and Social Justice

Running time: 45 minutes
Suitable for: ages 5 – 11 years (children must be accompanied by an adult)
Location: Please meet at the box office 10 minutes before the workshop to be taken to the workshop room
