A free two-hour art and poetry making workshop for people of all ages and backgrounds, using sci-fi, robots, aliens and space travel to explore neurodiversity, disability, gender, and the idea of being an outsider, as part of the development for a new family show called Spectacular Spacebots.
Spectacular Spacebots is about a robot called Hashtag who wants more than anything to be human. It explores toxic ideas about masking and having to act "normal" in order to be accepted as human, in a fun and vibrant way, mixing poetry, song, projection mapped animation and live digital puppetry.The cafe/bar and the People’s Palace of Possibility installation will be open half an hour before each event.
Leading the workshop will be Edalia Day, a trans/non-binary spoken word artist, animator and theatre maker based in Norwich. It's one of six workshops taking place around the UK and is suitable for children, adults, artists, animators, poets and anyone interested in having a go and seeing where their imagination takes them.
Part of A Future Fantastic Festival.
