Early Years Interactive Theatre
Locations: Australia, South Korea, India
Company: Imaginary Theatre
Role: Co-creator & performer
Theatre for children aged 2-5, their families and carers.
We arrive in a place and space unknown, and meeting in the middle we discover each other as strangers, then as friends. Surrounded by things both strange and familiar, together we look for possibilities, conduct experiments of play, and build a world. All on our own.
Be taken on a journey of joy, imagination and transformation as this intimate production unfolds a gentle story of resilience and friendship, using exquisite physical storytelling, object theatre, and interactivity. Look involves both performance and interactive play component where the audience is invited to play with the performers within the space.
Look was the first culmination of Play Project an extensive research initiative into the mechanics of children's play, and has been designed as an ideal first-time theatre experience for very young children to enjoy alongside their families, carers and teachers.
"Look will do for your kids what the very best theatre does for you"
