Elefeet on Film is a dance film festival celebrating the power of dance and the strength and creativity of dancers. Over two weeks, we will be sharing nine short films on social media, selected for inclusion in the festival after an open call-out. From May 22nd, all the films will be available to watch together on YouTube and in future we will screen them at the Blue Elephant.

These films offer glimpses into other worlds, emotions and experiences, often grappling with compelling questions and situations. We are very excited to be sharing them!

Playing Up!

Days of the week

Playing Up is a new series of drama workshops for children aged 1-3 and their adults.

These workshops use drama, singing, music, moving and props to explore creative play at home.

Pre-recorded workshops to watch anytime:

Workshop 1 - Hide and Speak

This workshop encourages both adults and children to act, sing and dance whilst going on a journey together through a forest. Children will be learning about their bodies and discovering their voices with their favourite teacher... you!

Workshop 2 - Music and Movement

This workshop encourages both adults and children to use music and sound to inspire actions and movements. Children will be singing songs, playing games and learning about the weather.

Workshop 3 - Feelings Friend

A new workshop encouraging children and adults to think about emotions and how they are expressed.

This series of workshops were created by Blue Elephant Theatre with the generous support of Alan and Babette Sainsbury Charitable Fund and Team London Bridge.

An Elephant Never Forgets...

Past shows at the Blue Elephant: if you didn't catch these the first time round, here's your chance to see them elsewhere!

Adapted with kind permission from the Bodleian Library's 1942 publication of the same name, Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain had a fully booked work in progress performance at the Blue Elephant before going on to tour nationally and internationally with sell-out runs in London and New York.

Fol Espoir have chosen to share this live performance to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. It can be seen here.

Fol Espoir has asked those who enjoy the video to please consider donating to Hospice UK's Covid-19 Crisis Appeal – helping to provide desperately needed support for patients, families and frontline hospice staff during this difficult time.
