Queen Rat’s Boudoir
18 December – 29 January
Inspired by the Hippodrome’s staging of Dick Whittington, the UK’s biggest pantomime, a dusty old store cupboard has been transformed into Queen Rat’s Boudoir. Hedderwick has created a fantastical throne that suggests a rat’s nest.
Sophia Clist, in collaboration with Nick Burge
7 – 16 January
In association with DanceXchange, Devon-based artist Sophia Clist has created an interactive, dynamic artwork, a screen made from hundreds of strands of elastic stretched from wall to wall. You can touch and move in and out of the elastic, and the structure will respond, vibrating and making sounds, like a giant rubber-band banjo. Shown nationally and internationally, this is the first time (re)Stretch has been to Birmingham.
