Peter Glanville, Artistic Director of Polka Theatre, has announced the full programme for Techtopia Festival, which comes to the venue later this month.
Running from 24 May until 3 June, Techtopia Festival includes a number of performances, workshops and installations spanning two weeks, exploring the role of technology in modern childhood.
The festival opens with Scanner’s Inc and House of Absolute’s Stardust, a special exploration of sound and dance. Other highlights include Error 404 and Random Selfies, followed by The First Girl In Space by Andrew Alty and performed by Polka Youth Theatre. Running alongside these are a variety of workshops including The World Of Supersaurs with author Jay Jay Burridge, and Animated Worlds with award-winning company 1927.
These are in addition to the previously announced iPet, Error 404, Random Selfies and The First Girl In Space.
We have all pondered how differently children today will grow up with: tablets, laptops and game consoles so readily available. The Techtopia Festival asks us to delve into this topical discussion and question our views on technology and childhood.
Polka invite you to create, question and marvel at how technology shapes all our lives through a thrilling programme of theatre, interactive workshops, debates, installations and unique learning experiences.
