Presented by Midsumma x Convent Kids.

Mini Beast Disco is a big-hearted, community-minded intergenerational eco-disco extravaganza—a wild, playful, youthful and green luminescent burst—recommended for kids aged 3–9 and their family hordes.

Part-performance, part-workshop, Mini Beast Disco undulates, squirms and worms into orbit, reframing ideas of ‘us’ and ‘community’ to include the biosphere. Flying in the face of anthropocentric domination, Proud and Queer underground artists Betty Grumble, Andreas Lohmeyer, and Dandrogyny will encourage an expansive view of the natural world to foster deep empathy, understanding and a sense of awe—always—in acelebration of togetherness and aliveness.

About

Mini Beast Disco is presented as part of Pivot 2021, Abbotsford Convent’s short-term residency program supported by the Australia Council for the Arts and Creative Victoria.

Convent Kids is an exciting program developed by Abbotsford Convent in collaboration with leading artists, offering a range of fun hands-on activities that will inspire children and their families to experiment, learn and make art together. Convent Kids is supported by City of Yarra.
