The Weather Machine

A playful outdoor work for young children and their families, where two witty characters make magic out of dance and weather – from the pitter patter of the lightest rain shower to the awesome howl of a storm, from footsteps in the snow to a joyful celebration of sunshine.

The Weather Machine is an entertaining, playful & interactive dance performance on the themes of weather & the seasons. The Weather Mechanicals are quirky, retro, Laurel & Hardy style characters, performed by two dancers, who with humour, physicality & gentle messaging invite audiences to observe them as they grapple & strain to stay in control of the fantabulous Weather Machine.

The Weather Machine is a metaphor for Climate emergency; through playful expression and gentle interaction it engages children and their families in an exchange with a matter that might otherwise appear worrying. This piece is a non-verbal dance theatre show that takes the audience on a journey through clear dramaturgy and virtuosic physical performers.

Do the Weather Mechanicals control the weather or does the weather control them?
