Imaginique is an innovative children’s festival offering live theatre and music experiences for children ages 0–12 and recognises the important role played by their caretakers. The program is as follows:
Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive on afternoons. The show is a poetic exploration of the changes this wind can cause: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands and jungles, leaving ships buried in sandy oceans, unable to sail. Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects, to give its audience a first-hand experience of how and why the Loo blows.
Here I am – Self Portrait workshop
This workshop demonstrates the complexity of children’s self-expression and cultural plurality. It explores themes of self-reflection, diversity, multiplicity and community as well as building fundamental skills in self-portraiture and watercolours.
Set inside a white dome the children and their carers will immediately become involved in a play without words where gorgeous sculptural objects, sounds, and beautiful costumes are the stimulus for a truly magical experience.
Air Play is a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal world, transforming ordinary objects into uncommon beauty. Fabrics dance in the wind, balloons have a mind of their own, confetti turns into the night sky and an enormous canopy of hovering silk forever alters their future. Flying umbrellas, larger-than-life balloons, giant kites floating over the audience, and the biggest snow globe you’ve ever seen will make you gasp in wonder and laugh until it hurts.
