Grass Films

Explore the world beneath your feet

1 - 11 Apr

For Everyone

We hope you enjoy Grass Films

 


Look down. What are you standing on? Explore the ground and all its wriggling inhabitants in this double bill of quirky dance films.

Polka and Second Hand Dance bring you two light and airy films this Easter.  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.

The double bill is accompanied by activities and available with or without audio description.

Created by Rosie Heafford, winner of the Arts Foundation Children’s Theatre Shortlist Award

SUNNY DAYS TRAILER

 

Feel, hear and smell the world around you.  Roll in the long grass, scrunch it beneath your fingers and 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 TRAILER

 

Join Takeshi and 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 and scrunchy leaves inspire you to get outside, get moving and play. How many insects can you spot?

This is a free gift however please consider making a donation to support Polka’s work.

“The sensory world gives us a wonderful opportunity to meet as equals and to explore the moment of life that we are sharing. Engaging and exploring sensation through the famous five senses, and beyond into the subconscious senses like vestibulation and proprioception enables us, regardless of disability, ability and neurodiversity to touch the now.”
