Sponge Tickets

The Spark Arts, Big Imaginations and Turned On Its Head present…


Roll, squeeze and pop yourself through a new malleable kind of family dance show, set to a 1970s-influenced score, perfect for babies, young children and families. Sponge is about all things spongy, a child’s ability to soak information up like a sponge and the squishy, squashy texture that fascinates children and adults alike.

Dance company Turned On Its Head makes exciting participatory theatre for early years, taking children on a creative journey, engaging audiences throughout its performances and encouraging lots of family interaction. Everything in Sponge can be made with simple materials at home so there’s plenty more fun to be had after leaving the theatre.

“Children are like sponges. They absorb all your strength and leave you limp, but give them a squeeze and you get everything back.” Jane Geldart
