Theatre Season 2019 RainbowFish

By | Theatre Season | No Comments

The Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in this award-winning book about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession. Using the magic of black light, Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia will bring The Rainbow Fish to life with their amazing puppetry skills.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s elegant new show, The Rainbow Fish, will include an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s colourful story as well as two of his companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.

Mermaid Theatre has earned international acclaim for its unique interpretations of the works of Eric Carle (The Very Hungry Caterpillar), Leo Lionni (Swimmy, Frederick & Inch by Inch) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You).

These widely-travelled productions incorporate innovative puppetry, striking scenic effects, and evocative original music to provide very young audiences with an effortless introduction to the performing arts and the excitement of reading. The Rainbow Fish features these same elements.

Winner of The Christopher Award, the Bologna Book Fair Critici in Erba Prize, American Booksellers Association ABBY Winner, and an IRA-CBC Children’s Choice title, the sweet message of The Rainbow Fish series has resonated with children, parents, teachers, librarians, and booksellers around the world.

For ages 3 to 8

The Rainbow Fish

August 27 to September 05, 2019


The first of three tales introduces the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. He is admired – and resented – by the entire underwater world, until a clever octopus advises him to give each fish one of his scales.

Further adventures follow as The Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore the great unknown deep sea, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes and colours who are eager to make his acquaintance. The underworld wonderland is the setting for an introduction to the concept of opposites.

As a fitting finale, the story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.

AESOPICA

An Experiential Programme of Show and Workshops
Singapore

For ages 4 to 8
June 1 to June 9, 2019
River Room
Asian Civilisations Museum
Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Watch a performance, participate in fun workshops and complete it all with a grand FINALE – a colourful procession together with Aesop’s animals around the Asian Civilisations Museum!

Based entirely on the wonderful collection of Greek storyteller Aesop’s most famous fables, this exciting programme will begin with a 20-minute performance told within an Asian-inspired art installation setting. After watching the performance, your child will join other children and take turns participating in two very special 30-minute workshops.

In Drama, your child will learn to move and physicalise actions with creative expression as the many different animal characters from the stories! In Music and Movement, he will pick up the skills needed to follow a tune, memorise lyrics and move to the music, all at one go!

Right before the programme ends, join these dedicated children as they take you on a glorious procession around the museum, an architectural landmark filled with more than 100 years of history. Last but not least, be awed as they present a finale performance on the steps of the museum’s front porch as you take in the aura of time gone by.

Who is A Line Art?

Anna Bruder and Arji Manuelpillai met making an Educational Young People’s production at the Young Vic Theatre in 2010. In 2011 they started an interactive theatre and art company called A Line Art which specialises in immersive theatre performances and art events for children, young people and their families.

‘What an amazing idea. At last something exciting and fun!’ Timeout

‘Their main aim is to inspire and encourage creative play. A Line Art is known for its strong illustrative aesthetic that Anna has honed for the last 7 years. The style takes the audience back to a childlike state of mind by transforming the original interior into an illustrated world. The work is fully accessible and has been described as ‘impeccable’. By aiming at naivete, her drawing style functions anti-hierarchically: anyone in the room, adult or child, could have drawn what she’s drawn, and that allows anyone to give it a go.’ Exeunt Magazine

“A Line Art has developed a huge following for their unique brand of interactive art and musical theatre shows where children and adults take part together.”

Who is Schoeme?

Schoemé is a South African actor, puppeteer, writer, drama teacher, director and founder of PuppeTrix; a theatre company specializing in theatre for 0 to 6 year olds.

Within those possibilities she wants to create meaningful work of quality for youngsters and their caregivers. Apart from South African festivals and performances in kindergartens, in 2018 she had the privilege to perform in Italy at Festival Visioni.

One-Session Parent and Child Performative Workshop

Green Thumbs

A farmer gets a plot of land but doesn’t know what to do with it. Should she plant some fruits? What about some vegetables? Did you say turnips?! Oh, there’s just so many things to do! Come help the farmer grow a bountiful garden! Who knows? You may just unearth your green thumbs!

This highly engaging performative workshop will start off with Drama warm-ups and activities that will get everyone up and going. Then, sit back, take a breather and watch our farmer perform and tell the story. After that, you and your child will explore and play as, you guessed it, farmers! Till the soil, dig up the dirt, drop the seeds, water the earth, feed the plants and wait…… Then pull, pluck, cut and have a wonderful feast of fruits and vegetables at the end!!

The Enormous Turnip

A Russian Folktale

Oh my!! There’s a giant turnip in the backyard and everyone on the farm thinks that they can pull it out on their own! The farmer yanks the turnip with all his might but it doesn’t even budge. Even the animals take their turns in giving a go – the sheep try their luck, the cats and the dogs, although enemies, work together to heave and ho, and the chickens pull, pull, pull! They are just about to give up when the tiny little mice come up with a splendid plan…..

Turnip Twist

In this twisted version based on The Enormous Turnip, experience what it is like to be on the other side of the fence – through the eyes of the turnip! A little baby turnip starts out as a seed growing amongst his many other brothers and sisters. One day, his adventure begins when a strong wind blows through the land. It takes the little seed on an exciting adventure finally landing him on a farm. With food and water, he begins to grow bigger and bigger until he catches the eyes of the farmers. Will the enormous turnip be turned into soup? Or will he give his two cents and live a long root-ful life?

Seeds

An inspired musical

The grass is really greener on the other side! Or is it?

Inspired by The Enormous Turnip and set to familiar tunes and snazzy lyrics, Seeds is a family-friendly musical complete with laughter, mystery and magic! It is a story about BIG dreams, hopes and magical turnip seeds. Three farmers have only one desire – to become rich, cool and famous so they never ever have to farm again. But after stumbling across a mysterious stranger, their worlds turn upside down and all around! Maybe a bowl of turnip soup is all they need.

Archipelago 2019

By | Theatre Season | No Comments

A baby is about to be born. Is it a boy or a girl? It is not important. The baby grows up and is looked after by the moon, the stars, and the clouds.

The baby is like a little island, surrounded by the sea, and by many other islands. It is part of the archipelago and on the islands, there are bridges, mountains, birds, trees, and whales which swim in the sea. A story told poetically through dance, song, movement, and imagery for early years.

For ages 1 to 4

Archipelago

February 16 and 17, 2019

Archipelago was conceived for two children’s festivals – ACT3iFestival (Singapore) and Visioni (Bologna, Italy) and made specifically to introduce quality theatre for very early years. A creative collaboration with Roberto Frabetti of Italy, it played in December 2018 in Teatro Ragazzi, Bologna to five full houses. Like a baby, the show was born and nurtured to give very young children a good first experience of quality theatre.
