Symphony of the Senses: Colour/Music at the Hepworth, Wakefield

Saturday October 7th and Sunday October 8th

Part of our Arts Council funded Symphony of the Senses Tour

Drop in to our unique Colour/Music Sensory Installation over the weekend to create your own world of colour and music through movement

Large fabric "sails" fill the space and reflect and mix colours and light that you, the public, create yourselves. Our resident composer, David Stevens, will be in the Hepworth Auditorium to show you how to create whole orchestras of sound with just the movement of your hands, feet - or literally any part of your body.

There will be a special performance by local children from Oakfield Park School of their own "Symphony of the Senses" on Saturday October 7th at 12.30pm. Students will have learnt new techniques of dance, fabrics, music and even fragrances to create a sensory performance.

The school performances will be led by composer David Stevens and movement artist Katie Aynsley with support from Eye Music Trust.
