The Enchanted Cinema is coming to the Horniman and they need your help with the score!
You’ll use instruments, hands and voices to help create the soundtrack to well-loved animated films, expertly guided by The Enchanted Cinema’s musicians and multi-instrumentalists.
Sound effects include a creaking porch, feet jumping through the snow, a river, magical chimes for a giant tree, a tinkling bell for Totoro’s whiskers, the roars and eyeballs of Maurice Sendak’s Wild Things and much more. The grown-ups will be asked to help too.
Every child gets a chance to be involved if they choose to, with older kids rising to the challenge of playing the xylophone or narrating the Wild Things animation live and younger ones delighting in the “cicada” shakers or “tree-frog” guiros.
With an inclusive and light-hearted atmosphere throughout, each show also features a live musical score by The Enchanted Cinema.
This event is aimed at children aged 4-12.
Seating will be on the floor. Chairs will be available for those who require them. The floor is carpeted with some soft furnishings but we advise bringing cushions or rugs for additional comfort.
