Polyglot Theatre has a busy month of touring this October with a number of national and international performances. Polyglot’s creative arts workshops will be presented in China for the first time for the Shanghai Performing Arts Fair, Ants makes its debut in Singapore for the Esplanade’s Octoburst!, and The Unconformity Festival presents We Built This City for the people of Queenstown, Tasmania.
“October is another busy month for Polyglot. That’s not at all unusual, but what is notable is the breadth of activities we’re undertaking this month, which takes us from an ambitious new contemporary arts festival in Tasmania all the way to Shanghai, where we have the opportunity to showcase our wonderful workshop program to delegates to China SPAF and Chinese children. We are excited to be reaching new audiences in these new contexts, and to build relationships for future cooperation.” Viv Rosman, Executive Producer/Co-CEO – Polyglot Theatre.
Ants makes its Singapore debut as part of the Octoburst! free program, from Friday 7 – Sunday 9 October in the Esplanade’s courtyards. This year’s Octoburst! Festival invites the young to embark on an adventure with stories from all corners of the imagination.
Polyglot has a strong presence at Shanghai’s Performing Arts Fair, China SPAF, this year, including a sought-after pitch in the “Going to Mainland China” session on 11 October. Polyglot’s workshop program has its Chinese premiere in a special Theatre for Young Audiences forum for China SPAF delegates, which will be followed by workshops for local children on 14 – 15 October. Polyglot’s activities in China are generously supported by the Australia–China Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australia Council for the Arts.
Polyglot’s We Built This City invites the children and adults of Queenstown, Tasmania to build the cities of their dreams and experience the transformative power of the arts. Award-winning The Unconformity Festival presents a bold program of events to inspire and celebrate the community of Queenstown. We Built This City is presented as a free event from Friday 14 – Saturday 15 October at the Queenstown Memorial Hall.
