Held over 18 days, the festival program presents the very best in contemporary dance, theatre, music, visual art, film, literature, food, family events, workshops, talks and more from across Asia today.
Cerita Anak (Child’s Story) is a must-see on your OzAsia family hit list. Cerita Anak takes children and their adults on a sea journey never to be forgotten. Climb aboard the specially made boat and be rocked and rolled across a strange ocean. Dive to the bottom of the sea, hear stories on the wind and in the currents of the water and face great danger before coming to safe harbour.
This immersive theatre experience draws its inspiration from the seafaring history in Java and the true tale of arrival in Australia told by a small boy. Combining puppetry, song, shadow imagery and sound, the show bustles with all the life of the ocean.
Audience members, both young and old are passengers and storytellers on this exquisite adventure.
‘An emotional overflow thanks to the sheer beauty and interactive fun of this simple yet superbly executed production.’
