You know how toddlers are really really good at just getting into life and working out how it is all put together? Each in their own way, but always in a totally sensory 'lets get under the bonnet and have a look shall we' kind of way? It's messy, and good. Well we might all be crazy, but we have made a new theatre-based work with our Rain collaborators for just such children.
Our five days of development at Arts Centre Melbourne had three performances a day, with fifteen toddlers and their families at each performance...AND we managed to change it every time! Sitting in the chaos, making big spatial gestures, observing, listening and echoing precious moments. What a week! We are tremendously grateful for the support of Arts Centre Melbourne in this new work. We know so much more about it now and gee, do we need a little rest! See more about the project here.
