Joy is Ours (2022)
Hallomai Dance explore what makes them joyous in the outdoor interactive performance of Joy is Ours. Watch as the four professional dancers play, connect and get tangled-up in a GIANT Cat's Cradle in this fun pop-up performance.
The piece incorporates a bright elasticated ‘scrunchie’ prop and energetic tunes from Sons of Kemet, Kokoroko, The Kinks, The Undertones, and Green Day.
Age Recommendation: 6months - 5years & their family members
Running Time: Roughly 20mins, incl. 10 mins audience interaction
We encourage audience interaction, and will provide support for those with additional needs, with the use of Makaton Sign Language and, Pecs Signs. We believe that everyone should be able to engage with dance!
Joy is Ours was premiered at the Wandsworth Arts Fringe in June 2022. It is set be toured to Housing Estates, community events and festivals, throughout London and the surrounding areas in 2023.
We are thrilled to have been commissioned by Wandsworth Council and awarded the Wandsworth Arts Fringe Grant 2023.
