We Came To Dance is one of the most anticipated new family friendly interactive musicals At the 2021 Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Our interactive and all-ages appropriate musical tells the story of extra-terrestrial life that arrives on Earth to warn its inhabitants of a climate crisis, after barely surviving catastrophe on their own planet. While guiding you in a fully immersed experience through rhythms, dance, and song, the characters relay a call to action and convey the tragedy of a changing climate -- yet each and every motion, movement, and note is infused with hope and joy.
What TO EXPECT
An Out-Of-This-World Experience
During the performance you will interact with aliens from a real exoplanet (they call it “Hanyana”) that we have imagined in partnership with Dr. Steve B. Howell at NASA Ames Research Center. The performers will sing in their own language created by famed linguist David Peterson, who developed Valyrian and Dothraki for HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Alongside the cast, you will groove to music created by Grammy-nominated Ghanaian afrobeats artist Rocky Dawuni and participate in synchronized dance originally designed in New York by Mary Page Nance of Broadway’s “Finding Neverland” and “The Great Comet” and choreographed and directed for the local production in Scotland by award-winning Ashley Jack and Becky Enoch of House of Jack Studio in Leith, Edinburgh.
An Important Message at our Core
With COP26 just around the corner in Glasgow our Musical couldn't be more timely. Not only does the plot of We Came To Dance focus on the danger of Climate Change but we have been very cautious in limiting our carbon footprint through he production process. From hiring a local team to reduce travel to our zero-waste sets created using upcycled set-pieces we are sticking to our climate friendly goals.
Help support the fight on Climate Change
Good Food Nation Bill
This prospective law is focused on helping Scotland transition to a fair, healthy, and sustainable food system. The Scottish Food Coalition is campaigning for the Good Food Nation Bill to create a coherent and connected approach to food policy that is committed to each and every person’s right to food.
Social Farm and Gardens
Community orchards are a great way to provide fruit for the whole community, eat nutritiously, and reduce your carbon footprint by eating locally. Orchards can also become habitat for wildlife and a vital site for beehives.
Support Climate Scotland
The campaign aims to collect 10,000 signatures to show Scotland’s leaders just how much its people care about the climate crisis. The campaign will present the petition in November at the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
