Polyglot Theatre, an Australian leader in creating experiential and interactive theatre, will present Sound of Drawing, which promises to change the way children see – and hear – their art. Children draw on large sheets of paper, on a table that’s wired for sound. Every time a pencil or crayon touches the table, sensitive microphones underneath turn the children’s scratching, swirling, tapping and scrawls into an amazing soundscape. Individual headsets are worn so that each delighted child can hear the sounds they make. It’s a thrilling experience.
Saturday 6 July | 10.00am-1.00pm, 2.00pm-4.00pm
Sunday 7 July | 10.00am-1.00pm, 2.00pm-4.00pm
This July school holidays we’re inviting the kids to take over. In a weekend jam-packed with events, activities and workshops, we’re opening up the new Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts to families. The focus is on interactive and participatory events that will get your children dancing, drawing, singing and reading. We’re also welcoming back the award-winning Slingsby following the success of Emil and The Detectives in 2018. Drop in anytime to be captured by the magic and fun.
