KIDZ LIT FEST: Luna Loves Dance

23 July | Latitude Festival

  • An illustrated picture of a large group of people partying, whirling streamers and dancing. Text on the image reads. 'Luna Loves Dance'

Age suitability: 3-7

Join us for a wild and wonderful performance of the heartwarming children’s book LUNA LOVES DANCE by the award-winning duo, writer Joseph Coelho – Waterstones Children’s Laureate 2022-24 – and illustrator Fiona Lumbers.

When Luna dances, she feels like the world’s volume turns up, like all colours brighten, like sunlight sparkles behind every cloud. But when she takes her dance exam she ducks, dives, spins and… falls. Luna thinks she can’t be a real dancer now. Can Luna’s family convince her otherwise?

Performed by Hackney Showroom Associate Artist Azara Meghie & DJ Mark Rostron followed a family Disco.

Azara Meghie is a multi-disciplinary artist working with live art and film, poetry, breakdancing and theatre. Recent theatre credits include I, Joan at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Brought to you by Hackney Showroom’s family arts programme Disco Loco.
