About the show:
The Feminist Mouse Circus is a family puppet show featuring an extraordinary troupe of performing mice. Hear about their tragic former life as experimental subjects in a lab and their breath taking escape and emancipation as powerful feminists. Thrill at their spectacular circus show displaying the feminist qualities of strength, skillfulness and daring! Through the use of storytelling, audience interaction and puppetry, the Feminist Mouse Circus is a playful introduction to gender politics framed through the sparkling lens of circus stereotypes.

About the Workshop:
Take part in an interactive workshop, drawing on simple engineering concepts to explore some of the techniques used to animate the mice in the performance. Try out simple experiments learning about balance, levers, kinetics and forces and make a circus inspired balance toy to take home.
