Link and Rex are like light and dark, left and right. Watch these two opposites get their wires crossed as they strive to find ways to work and play together.
Inspired by research into the human brain, Bright Sparks is a playful, visually rich and delightfully humorous show that explores the beauty of difference.
“Illuminating and sparky.”
Children’s Theatre Review
Research into Bright Sparks began at the egg’s 2015 Incubator. The piece looks at the left and right sides of the brain and attempts to debunk the popular and limiting myth that people are either simply ‘logical’ OR ‘creative’. In this wordless production we aim to demonstrate that the human brain actually needs both sides to function together without one dominating the other.
Originally commissioned by the egg. Supported by Theatre Royal Bath Leverhulme Arts Scholarship and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth and Stratford Circus.
Running time: 50 minutes
