It’s the summer holidays and the Southbank Centre continues its commitment to present the best performance and dance for children and families with Clouds, a magical touring show from Spanish company Aracaladanza who are here in London for a rare four day run.
It fires the imagination of children and their adults alike with its evocative sets and a surreal narrative inspired by the emotive work of artist René Magritte.
Aracaladanza are a multi award-winning dance company, directed by Enrique Cabrera, who specialise in dance productions aimed at children and young adults. With an ensemble of six performers, this enticing show with swirling clouds, miniature houses and enchanting music will delight children aged four and above, as they enter a fantasy world where butlers and ballerinas dance in a riot of colour, where clouds turn into sheep and shadows make beautiful patterns to create a world full of surprises.
Clouds is the second part of a trilogy inspired by renowned visual artists whose iconic works are graphically striking and imaginative, complementing Aracaladanza’s aesthetic. Other works in this trilogy are inspired by the work of Joan Miró and Hieronymus Bosch.
Clouds is part of Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love (28 June – 31 August), which will explore the many facets of human love including family love, romantic love and the love of humanity.
Minx and I can’t wait to see this at the weekend, it looks brilliant, maybe we’ll see you there?
