Spring has sprung at The Hullabaloo

29 Apr ’21

Theatre Hullabaloo, the children’s arts charity based on Borough Road in Darlington, have created a new interactive window installation for families to visit and interact with as the venue remains temporarily closed.

The window installation created in collaboration with Northumberland based Green Croft Arts invites families to view the loveliness of spring and has been inspired by the peace found in nature and children’s responses to lockdown one year ago when families told Theatre Hullabaloo that they could hear the birds singing in the parks and in their gardens.

The interactive installation features beautiful, springtime colours, feathered friends, and birdsong soundscapes downloadable via QR codes on the glass.

Amanda Drago, Co-Director at Green Croft Arts states “the interactive elements are playful and reflect the positivity of spring. We hope they will encourage families to play creatively animating the dancing flowers, and filling the rainbow with colour as well as listening closely to the sounds of bird song”

Miranda Thain, CEO & Artistic Producer at Theatre Hullabaloo says “Whilst government restrictions mean that sadly The Hullabaloo remains closed, we hope that local children and families will enjoy interacting with our latest window installation. It has been fantastic to work alongside Green Croft Arts who will be returning to The Hullabaloo later in the year as part of our reopening programme”
