The family performance Penguins, tells us the real story of penguin couple Roy and Silo who walk, swim and dance together. They are also both boys, so when the zookeeper finds them trying to hatch a stone, he thinks there may be a chance for Roy and Silo to become parents for real. A unique an engaging show, Penguins uses movement and visuals to explore fun, friendship and the ever-changing definition of family. Created by award-winning director Paul Bosco Mc-Eneaney and international choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra.

Guerra stated that “what matters is that all children are loved and well looked after, regardless of the gender of who does it.”

Surrounding the themes in Penguins, Andrew Moffat MBE will be leading a workshop for those who work in education and with children on Wed 18 April, 4.30 – 6pm at Bournemouth Learning Centre. He will be introducing the practical content he created in his education resource to then be used in schools as part of an accessible way for children to learn about different families, gender and identity. The resource pack is supported by Stonewall, an LGBT friendly charity that champions anti-LGBT bullying in schools. Download the pack for free at
