Kids Take Over │Street Theatre Performance Workshop

Forget running away to join the circus – we’ll bring the circus to you. Working closely with two seasoned performers, you’ll learn to juggle, hula-hoop, perhaps even ride a unicycle! Plus you’ll learn how to weave your new skills into a the art of roving performance to create a street theatre routine – maybe you’ll be performing at festivals around the world in years to come!

Then on Sun 18 April, workshop participants will be invited to become honorary HOTA Disruptors-in-Residence; popping up in different places around HOTA, performing in unexpected places and creating unforgettable moments of magic and surprise for audiences attending our Kids Take Over Mini Music Festival.
