Caroline Bowditch – The Adventures of Snigel

Snigel is a curious snail who loves bubbles! From the minute Snigel wakes up to when they fall asleep, bubbles are what they think about. Join Snigel on their journey to find out where the bubbles come from.

A new collaboration between performance artist and choreographer Caroline Bowditch, designer and technician Laura Hook, musician and sound designer Zac Scott.

Glasgow based, but Australian born, performance artist and choreographer, Caroline Bowditch, describes herself as a performer, maker, teacher, speaker and mosquito buzzing in the ears of the arts industry in the UK and further afield.
