Talking Objects families performance

Talking Objects families performance

Date: Sunday 11 September | Time: 11-12pm and 2-3pm | Location: Unity Kitchen Timber Lodge Cafe - 1 Honour Lea Avenue, London, E20 1DY | Price: FREE | Age group: Families, all ages welcome

This event is part of UCL Culture's UCL East outreach public programme.

Join us for an immersive theatre performance for families at the Timber Lodge Cafe on Sunday 11 September from 11-12pm and 2-3pm.

The performance is a collaboration between Skewbald Theatre, African Communuity School, Academy Achievers and UCL Culture.

Imagine that you could sit down with a museum object, have a cup of tea and piece of cake and ask it questions about itself? Before you know it you could be having a conversation with a tiger skull, a billion year old meterorite, a work by Van Dyck and an ancient egyptian amulet. What would these objects say to you if they could speak? What would you say to them? What questions woul you ask? In this project we want to bring the museum to where the people are and create a playful imersive theatre performance in collaboration with local community groups in the four Olympic boroughs.

All welcome.

We look forward to seeing you there.
