Polyglot Theatre

    Theatre company

    Polyglot Theatre is Australia’s leading creator of interactive and participatory theatre for children and families. Our distinctive artistic philosophy has placed us at the international forefront of contemporary arts experiences for babies and children up to 12 years, meeting with professional acclaim and recognition around the world. Inspired by the artwork, play and ideas of children, we create imagined worlds where audiences actively participate in performance through touch, play and encounter.

    At Polyglot we approach our work for and with children with curiosity, attention and respect. We know that as agents for cultural change, children can influence perceptions of place, space and art making. Our works show the power and capability of the child to an adult audience.

    With our child-centred focus, we generate contemporary, engaging theatre experiences that take us into unexpected artistic territory. We use simple materials to encourage creative confidence and participation. We take over public spaces and create transformational worlds and we travel far and wide.
