Polyglot in Singapore

Polyglot Theatre celebrates 50 Years of Singapore’s Independence

Polyglot Theatre, Australia’s leading creator of contemporary participatory experiences for kids and families celebrates Singapore’s 50th year of independence with Rocky the Koala, Ned the Pelican, and Precious the Emu from 18-20 May 2015 as part of the 50 Bridges Festival.

Dubbed 50 Bridges OZ, the Australian High Commission is gifting Singapore with a touch of Aussie spirit bringing performances, street art and barbeques to families across the country. This celebration also commemorates 50 years of Australia-Singapore diplomatic relations.

Rocky the Koala has a great personality and is very fond of gum leaves.  Ned is a friendly pelican who soars gracefully through blue skies. He dives, weaves, swoops and turns amongst the crowds. Precious is an inquisitive emu that loves people and relishes the attention from her adoring fans. Together they form Wild Things, Polyglot’s beautiful interactive street performance of Australian animals that roam from cities to towns in search of their homeland, gathering and sharing many stories along the way!

Polyglot Theatre will perform alongside Snuff Puppets in areas of Singapore that have limited access to arts experiences.

Polyglot joins Australian High Commissioner Philip Green, alongside Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop, and Singaporean Government representative Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth.

Polyglot Theatre is an internationally renowned small to medium arts organisation creating contemporary cultural experiences for children and families. These performances in Singapore accompany Polyglot projects in Japan and Indonesia this month.
