Outback Theatre for Young People’s Little Movers and Makers Project
Little Movers and Makers sees Outback Theatre artist, Mandy Field work with two playgroups in Deniliquin; the Aboriginal Jyldamenk Playgroup and the Young Parents Group, which will result in a community performance. The project will offer an introductory theatrical experience for local young children and launch OTYP into our first foray of theatre for the very young.
In partnership with Intereach, the Little Movers and Makers Project will work young children under five and their parents, from the Intereach’s Family support service in a 6 week visual arts and movement program, culminating in a community performance.
A small cast of high school age young people will be engaged in the process, working alongside director/choreographer Mandy Field, Sound Designer Vic McEwan and Visual Designer Danilo Paglialonga.
The performance outcome, set to be staged in Deniliqin on Saturday November 15 and 16 2014, will be an immersive and tactile experience, designed to overcome age, developmental and language barriers and create a shared, joyous experience for parents and children. The outcome will be a combination of visual, audio and performance elements that will take families on an intimate journey through a theatrical world of their own creation.
