Following its launch at a sell-out festival at the Bush Theatre last year, the storytelling circus Storystock comes to the Saatchi Gallery on King’s Road for the Easter holidays this year, from 7th to 27th April.
Suitable for children aged from 4 to 13 years old who love stories, Storystock combines stories with art, artists and art-isms and will be held alongside the Gallery’s new exhibition, Pangaea: New Art from Africa and Latin America.
There will be a number of workshops, pop-up events, tours – and storytelling, of course! – as well as Storystock’s reinvention of the audio guide, which they’ve named the ANTI-GUIDE.
Award-winning artist Amy Gadney has been commissioned to create the ANTI-GUIDE, offering up a completely different and immersive way of experiencing the Pangaea exhibition. The ANTI-GUIDE will be available throughout the exhibition’s run.
“We’re thrilled to be creating a family element to the Pangaea exhibition in the beautiful, inspiring and fun Saatchi Gallery. We want to give children the chance to learn about the art in an irreverent and playful way through our creative workshops, storytelling, pop-up events and ANTI-GUIDE – our psychedelic audio guide,”
explains Claire Gill, STORYSTOCK co-founder.
