A Polyglot Production.
I attended this on 14th March 2011 at ArtPlay.
This is the tangled web.
What you do is get a ball of elastic and tie it to another piece up already, then just go walking through the web with the ball in your hands.
I really liked it. My ankle got tangled several times but my brother got his whole body tangled in it!
Rescuing Josh from the hungry spiders (my poem) – No spiders actually were there on the day!
Even Spiderman couldn’t make his way through
So it’s up to me, to rescue Joshua
Cause he’s my brother
Using my flexibility, I can reach him
Now just have to pull him out
Great! I rescued him.
Recommended age: 5-12yrs.
Here are some photos of my brother Josh and I in the tangled web:
As you can see we got very tangled in the web!
Here is a video clip of us in the web:
This was an Australian and Italian production created by Compagnia TPO.
I attended this on Saturday 2nd April 2011 at ArtPlay. This was my second time attending this performance.
It involved special lighting effects featuring beautiful Aboriginal paintings on a carpet and dancers performed to it in time along with expressive music and sound effects while telling a story.
It was also very interactive as audience members were invited to join in at different times.
My favourite part was when there was a big blue butterfly, which looked like it was being controlled by the actors as they moved their hands around.
I also liked it when I was called onto the carpet to dance. I felt nervous when I went up there but I didn’t feel so nervous when Tager joined me. Tager and I danced on Lily pads and we went under a sheet that had projected stars on it. It was all fun, dancing.
To me, Salt Bush means ….
A U S T R A L I A and U S – we’re all from different places, but have this great land in common. 🙂
I recommend people go to see this at ArtPlay– school groups can attend also. Best for ages 5yrs+ as there is a small educational talk as well at the start about Aboriginal history.
