The dancers’ garden by Alaa Satir
Please RSVP below.
Join the opening day of The dancers’ garden, a new interactive artwork for families created by artist Alaa Satir at The Mosaic Rooms. The dancers’ garden is inspired by Alaa’s fictional tale of two dancers who travel from a place by the river Nile to a garden where they can share their art and dance and be free to make music. The dancers in Alaa’s story are presented in this multi-sensory installation. Follow the birds around The Mosaic Rooms’ garden to find the sculpture of the two women, then together you can dance, draw and play! The artwork includes a sand pit, musical instruments and drawing activities.
Meet the artist and be the first to explore this new installation for young visitors. You can also enjoy a free scoop of Darlishi’s ice cream to celebrate the opening of The dancers’ garden.
Most of the activities in The dancers’ garden are suitable for children aged 4 and over, but younger children are welcome. Parents must take responsibility for the safety of their children whilst playing in the garden.
