Boats Open Rehearsal
Families are invited to join Polyglot Theatre and take part in an open rehearsal of the company’s upcoming festival performance – Boats.
Boats is an adventurous play space for children of all ages, using colourful vessels to navigate urban seascapes.
At a central mooring place, large lightweight boats wait patiently for children’s imagination and energy. Once aboard, the boats are propelled by a flurry of feet, with kids working as a crew for their own voyage across the high seas. As the boats journey, Polyglot artists float as castaways to be rescued or as mysterious elements of the urban ocean. Together artists and children guide the boats to safe harbour ready for new crew and the next adventure!
Boats engages children in play that re-imagines the familiar and concrete into something unpredictable and fun.
This open rehearsal is best suited to children aged 3 – 12, and their adults.
Based in the Convent’s Sacred Heart building, Polyglot Theatre is Australia’s leading creator of interactive and participatory theatre for children and families. Inspired by the artwork, play and ideas of children, Polyglot Theatre creates imagined worlds where audiences actively participate in performance through touch, play and encounter.
