This amazing musical, sensory, multi-media environment grabs your attention and keeps you exploring, playing, experimenting amongst the Magic Islands in Space. Spot your reflection in sparkly craters, be mesmerised by modules on the rocket, ride the travellator! Light Beams from from David Boultbee (BREAD Art) meet lo-fi inventive interventions from More Music’s Anni Tracy and Ben McCabe.
Singing, music, projections, texture, colour and shadow create a magical experience ideal for very young children and their families. An immersive, interactive and responsive space-show allowing children to set the pace and freely explore.
The Storey Auditorium will be transformed into a retro sci-fi landscape where projections, objects, instruments and playful interventions gently flow between light and shade.
Magic Islands was originally developed by More Music in partnership with Charlotte Arculus, Early Years Artist and artistic director of Magic Adventure and developed further by Lancaster Arts as part of Noisy Gallery. This development for Light Up Lancaster has been jointly produced by Lancaster Arts and More Music.
Annual Gathering of the Arts Communities in Lancaster District
You are invited to join us for the 6th Annual Gathering of the Arts Communities in Lancaster District on Wednesday, November 27th, 6.00pm – 9.00pm at More Music in Morecambe.
In 2013, the Lancaster Arts Partners established 20:20 Vision, a 7-year framework document for arts activity in the area. And every year since we have gathered together the arts communities in our district, from individual practitioners to larger organisations, for an enjoyable, informal evening in which we review the year gone by and look ahead to the year coming. This year, as 2020 approaches, we will be reflecting on the 20:20 Vision document, and considering how best we frame the next vision of arts provision in the District.
The Annual Gathering is a great opportunity to get involved, meet other artists, enjoy a live performance, network with representatives from larger organisations and stakeholder bodies and review (and preview) the arts activities in our fantasticly vibrant and creative district.
Put Nov 27th 6pm-9pm in your diary now and join us!
Please feel free to share this event with anyone involved in the arts locally whom you think may be interested.
