Creation Creation

Windmill Theatre Company (SA)
Theatre
Ages 8+

A daring and audacious journey to the very edge of the universe and back again. It’s a wild theatrical experiment for the curious among us.

How did we get here? Are aliens real? And is it possible to lick your elbow?

Based on interviews with members of the South Australian community aged between 8-102, Creation Creation is a comedy about life’s biggest mysteries.

Two fearless creators have been asked to step onto the stage and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the universe using whatever tools they have at their disposal. Blankets become forts, cardboard boxes become battleships and ping pong balls become planets in this hilarious explosion of art, sculpture and puppetry.

Please Note: Some of the big questions tackled during this show, raised and then answered by the general public children and adults we interviewed, include; ‘how did the world begin?’, ’is there other life in the universe?’, ‘how are babies made?’, ‘what does dying feel like?’, and ‘what will life on earth be like in 1,000 years?’. These questions and answers are played out by our performers in gentle, moving and fun ways. Viewer discretion is advised, viewer curiosity is recommended.

All performances of Creation Creation are AUSLAN interpreted.

Human. Kind.

Josh Earl (VIC)
Music/Comedy
Ages 4+

Josh Earl is a human. He is also a comedian. And he would also like people to think he is kind. In this brand new show for children he would like you to meet some aliens who just want ice cream, a boy who just will not wash, and learn why hearts are like starfish and absolutely not like pizza.

We often ask kids what they want to be when they grow up and expect them to give occupational answers – doctor, teacher, footballer. What if we aspire for them to be happy, kind, empathetic, resilient, or creative?

Human. Kind. is a musical comedy storytelling show for children all about navigating their way through this big, sometimes overwhelming, world.

Music

Inspired by the book ‘Our Little Inventor’ by Sher Rill Ng, published by Allen and Unwin Publishers, 2019.

West Australian Opera presents Our Little Inventor in association with the 2022 AWESOME Festival, West Australian Young Voices and Western Australian Youth Orchestra.

Tröll

Trick of the Light Theatre (NZ)
Theatre
Ages 8+

A lo-fi wi-fi fable. 

It’s 1998. Otto is twelve but online he’s thirteen and he’s pretty sure he gets away with it. He lives with his mum, dad, and sister, a mysterious Icelandic granny, and an ancient malevolent troll that’s lurking in the walls. From Trick of the Light Theatre comes a lo-fi wi-fi fable. Tröll combines storytelling, projection, music and puppetry into an uncanny tale from the dial up age.

Written and performed by Ralph McCubbin Howell, directed by Charlotte Bradley and Hannah Smith, this darkly comic one-man show brings the innovative staging and intricate narrative that enchanted audiences with The Bookbinder into the digital world.

As mobile phones become light sources, laptops transform into skyscrapers, and charger cords morph into puppets, it tells a story both mythic and modern in the vein of Stranger Things.
