Let’s Get Digital: Techtopia Festival

May 3, 2018

Today we have announced the full programme for our exciting Techtopia Festival running from 24 May to 3 June.

The festival will include a number of performances, workshops and installations spanning two weeks exploring the role of technology in modern childhood.

Techtopia opens with Scanner’s Inc and House of Absolute’s Stardust, a special exploration of sound and dance. Other highlights include Error 404 and Random Selfies¸ followed by The First Girl In Space by Andrew Alty and performed by Polka Youth Theatre. Running alongside these are a variety of workshops including The World of Supersaurs with author Jay Jay Burridge, and Animated Worlds with award-winning company 1927.

These are in addition to the previously announced iPet, Error 404, Random Selfies and The First Girl in Space.

We have all pondered how differently children today will grow up with: iPads, laptops and game consoles so readily available.  This festival asks us to delve into this topical discussion and question our views on technology and childhood.

We invite you to create, question and marvel at how technology shapes all our lives through a thrilling programme of theatre, interactive workshops, debates, installations and unique learning experiences.
