In 2015 Polyglot worked with several Victorian schools in the development of our new work.
Victorian College for the Deaf was part of our wonderful Voice Lab development and the creative development of experiential theatre work Separation Street. The Currajong School helped our Geek In Residence Tom Killen to develop a creative game for our website (see the KIDS section) and Dinjerra Primary school gave us all we needed to explore a fantastic new Play Space work Boats.
Other schools involved in Separation Street were St Joseph’s Primary School and Westgarth Primary School in Northcote.
We really love working with the PIPS (Polyglot Inspiring people’s Society) – our children’s advisory panel. They show us the way into new workshops and ideas, and let us know if our website is kid-friendly.
In 2015, we once more collaborated with Papermoon Puppet Theatre in Java Indonesia to develop the first stage of a theatre performance for early years – Cerita Anak (Child’s Story). The Suitcase Royale were our collaborators for Separation Street, working alongside some of the best artists in the independent scene to craft this fascinating show.
Critical Appraisal Panels are placed around all our new work and Polyglot’s Artistic Catalyst Group gives us excellent provocation when we most need it.
