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 short, sweet and quirky dance films from Second Hand Dance. Available to watch for free on QFT Player as part of the Belfast Children's Festival 2021.
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.
Insect Hands and Sunny Days will inspire you to look a little more closely at the world around you, get moving, get outside and play.
This double bill is accompanied with interactive activities and the films will also be available with audio description.
Created by Rosie Heafford, winner of the Arts Foundation Children’s Theatre Shortlist Award.
Feel, hear and 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.
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 & scrunchy leaves inspire you to get outside, get moving, and play. How many insects can you spot?
