Homotopia Family Weekender

19 November - 20 November 2022

Homotopia and friends hosted a weekend of creative activities and fun performances at the Bluecoat. Suitable for all families, however you define yours.

Featuring badge making, storytelling, live dance, and a huge family-friendly party!

Come one, come all, let’s have a ball, get arty, get creative, families big and small.

Free, drop in

Curious Arts presented Mini Pride a pop-up, family focused event, inviting the public to ‘drop-in’ and celebrate everything that’s unique about families through arts, crafts and storytelling with local Drag Queens and artists.

DeNada Dance Theatre presented Bull & The Moon, a brand-new family friendly production that celebrates anyone who dances to their own tune. A fun, fiery and magical dance performance that blends contemporary dance, flamenco and theatre, this is a heart-warming story about the importance of being yourself. Directed by Carlos Pons Guerra for DeNada Dance Theatre, the work has been co-choreographed by Pons Guerra and flamenco artist Ana García.

Fatt Projects presented PALAVER Party is a fabulous performance party for kids (and their grown-ups too). We invited all our friends to a party where everyone is free to be whoever they want to be. We were joined by a spectacular line-up of performers, artists, and Drag Queens celebrating self-expression and all the things that make us unique (with a big dose of glitter thrown in for good measure).

Quick Duck Theatre presented Fashion Spies, where Devil Wears Prada meets Spy Kids in this fabulous and surreal choose-your-own-adventure comedy. The stakes and the shoulder pads have never been higher… Fashion Spies puts audiences right into the heart of the show. Find yourself on an undercover mission as you travel around the world with Quick Duck Theatre – your choices will help to thwart the biggest threat that fashion has ever seen.
