PACT’s ever-popular ›Open Day‹ is a fun packed opportunity to come along and explore the former pithead baths in its lively present-day incarnation as a centre for the arts. What’s it like onstage, backstage or even behind the scenes in our studios and offices? And how does our team prepare for big performances? In an exciting show of their own making, our technicians and masters of illusion reveal the secrets of stage lighting, soundscapes and special effects like dry ice, wind machines and much more. Meanwhile, young talents can learn some cool new moves for themselves with the urban dance specialists from DANCEFLAVOUR. Children can have their faces painted by a real make-up artist and slip into a super hero costume for a free souvenir photo against a choice of exciting stage backdrops. Hakan Eren, the sensational balloon artist, will once again be busy bringing comic figures to life and knotting fantastic balloon costumes. Countless other activities, including guided tours, are just waiting to be discovered!
