Dough!
Date: 29th April 2017
Details:  Dough! explores how life can be filled with colour and beauty when we step outside the beige world we know.

Franky is in a mess, a very doughy mess. Unable to resolve the chaos in her kitchen she has to make a journey to an unfamiliar place to get help. Everything tastes, smells and feels different there.

Fantastic things can happen with ordinary stuff. And what could be more ordinary than the dough that makes our everyday staples. Familiar to all cultures, dough creates the loaves, naan bread, croissants, dumplings and chapattis that remind us of home.

Originally commissioned through Made To Be Seen from Creative Scene, the Creative People and Places project for North Kirklees.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.
