Octoburst is back again with yet another kids festival! This year, you can expect a line-up of interactive performances from around the world and workshops that encourages play and family fun. One of the line-up I am particularly drawn to is Cerita Anak (Child’s Story) where audiences are able to choose experience through 2 different perspectives:

  • The inner audience (Passenger) is made up of child and adult pairs who enter the boat as passengers and fully participate in the work.
  • The outer audience (Villager) is made up of other family members and older children. They are seated in a typical theatre seating arrangement and watch the work as a piece of theatre.
Date: 4-6 October 2019
Venue: Esplanade Theatre
