Looking for some fun indoors these July school holidays?
An adventurous new audio-led theatre experience, Mountain Goat Mountain, has been created during isolation for families across Australia to enjoy at home.
The work was created by Australian theatre company Threshold and developed with the support of Adelaide Festival Centre’s DreamBIG Children’s Festival, Arts Centre Melbourne, AWESOME International Children’s Festival and HOTA, Home of the Arts.
Aimed at families with young children (aged five years and older) who miss going to the theatre, Mountain Goat Mountain is an interactive storytelling journey.
Through a series of activities that help families set up and step into their own magical imaginative world, participants will find themselves crawling through tunnels, crossing lava pits and swimming through underwater caves – all without leaving home.
Guided by a narrative soundscape, families will embark on this 45-minute theatrical experience using only a charged audio device (computer, phone or tablet), a bed sheet (the bigger the better), a piece of blank paper (A4 will do) and their favourite pencils, pens or markers.
Audiences can access Mountain Goat Mountain via The Show Must Go On, Adelaide Festival Centre’s new collection of online interviews and performances: www.adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au/whats-on/the-show-must-go-on
Tickets cost $12.95 per family and are valid for 30 days, with all funds going to the artists who created the work.
