CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL

2019

Schools Program

Arts South Australia Department for Education


Welcome

Steven Marshall MP Premier of South Australia DreamBIG Children’s Festival invites children, students, and families from across South Australia to learn, connect with others, and engage their creative skills. It is an iconic festival on the South Australian arts calendar, and has seen more than two million children participate since its establishment in 1974. This year DreamBIG Children’s Festival has a number of shows that reflect the principles of STEAM (integrating ‘A’ for arts with STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths). STEAM takes thinking and teaching to the next level, replacing limitations with innovation by combining traditional learning with art. Creative thinking is vital to the future success of our state. We want our next generations to think differently, approach problems in dynamic and creative ways, and fulfil their greatest potential. Engaging with the arts brings great joy to our children, and I extend my best wishes for a successful DreamBIG Children’s Festival!

Adelaide Festival Centre is proud to present South Australia’s beloved children’s festival.

DreamBIG Children’s Festival 2019 is packed with inspiring, motivating experiences for you and your students. Our theme this year is People Together. In the words of Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” To work well together we must respect and enjoy our similarities and differences.

DreamBIG Children’s Festival is bringing People Together in 2019!

DreamBIG Children’s Festival provides many learning opportunities for young people and the diversity of our community is reflected in this year’s program and theme. The festival brings people together in a way only the arts can. Adelaide Festival Centre is a creative home for people of all ages and many young South Australians begin their lifelong journey with the arts through DreamBIG Children’s Festival. I congratulate and thank federal, state, and local governments and departments, sponsors and partners, Adelaide Festival Centre and venue staff, artists and participants, our wonderful team of volunteers, and the teachers and families who return again and again to celebrate and support creative programming for young people. I look forward to seeing you at the Big Family Weekend and throughout the festival.

One of this year’s focuses is empathy. It enables us to function in the world and we need to nurture it now more than ever. This year’s festival includes experiences to unite your students and expand their hearts and minds as they enter new worlds, trying on other people’s shoes. The 2019 festival is filled with dancing, dogs, gruffalos, robots, singing, birthdays, orchestras, fireflies, imagination, pandas, music, expeditions, opera, silent discos, writers, rice, a musical cubby town, and more! Enjoy looking through this program and selecting things for your students. They deserve the best we can offer. And I’m confident you’ll enjoy yourself as well!

Adelaide Festival Centre acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across South Australia. We pay respect to ancestors and Elders past, present, and emerging as we present DreamBIG Children’s Festival. We honour their cultural and spiritual relationship with their country and we do so in the spirit of reconciliation.

The theme People Together brings arts and education people together to amplify participation and engagement in quality arts experiences for children and young people to encourage them to dream BIG! Whether or not you’re able to access the bountiful festival program, there are oodles of ideas in the accompanying teachers’ resource to support creating vibrant arts experiences for students back at school. Participation in arts and cultural activities in schools is beneficial for learning, personal, social and community development outcomes. Thank you to the many Arts Ambassadors, artists and the festival team for your role in ushering our young people together to celebrate all that we have in common!

STATEWIDE Schools can choose to perform the Opening Event dance at their school assembly. Win $500 worth of art supplies by participating in DreamBIG 2019. See p37 for details. See p44 for detailed prices and times for the opening event.

The event will finish with a high-energy gig by South Australian group Electric Fields, whose exuberant music perfectly embodies the festival theme. To launch DreamBIG 2019, students and teachers will perform a specially choreographed dance as they make their way across the footbridge for an afternoon of performances, workshops, exhibitions and other activities. Video of this easy to learn dance choreography will be available at dreambigfestival.com.au from 1 February 2019 for participating students and teachers to practise along with their singing in Term 1! 4

New Owner A story of love, loss and new beginnings from the creators of the international smash hit The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer. Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship - but Mabel is old, and Bart is young – how will their bond unfold and what can they learn from each other? Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes. Nominated for Best Presentation for Children at the 2017 Helpmann Awards, this is a deeply moving tale about loss, friendship and new beginnings. This show is suitable for students with hearing impairment and/or EALD.

A Windmill Theatre Company production presented by Adelaide Festival Centre

Beep

From the makers of Grug, comes this slightly sideways tale about unexpected friendship, finding where you fit, and learning to mix it up a little. In Mort’s village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang... down comes Beep. What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon, who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home? With Windmill’s trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, Beep tells the story of what happens when someone new comes to town.

In the hands of Junkyard Beats, ordinary household items are transformed into extraordinary musical instruments and unwanted junk comes alive in surprising ways. An abandoned kitchen becomes the greatest drum set in the world, pipes produce eerie melodies, and wheelie bins suddenly get a whole new meaning.

The Displaced

“The highlight of Adelaide Fringe.” Arts Hub

By Time in Space Circus In an increasingly disconnected, disjointed world, The Displaced asks us all to reach out and make meaningful connections with those around us. The Displaced uses new circus as a medium to encourage students to think and reflect about ideas of privilege, cultural conditioning and primal instincts. Featuring powerful images of separation, longing and ultimately reunion, the show demonstrates the ultimate paradox: that while we can be at arm’s reach from each other, we can be light years away from establishing any true emotional connection. The Displaced is from Time in Space, a group of young Adelaide-based artists whose aim is to inspire and encourage other young people to express their individuality and connect with themselves and others. 10

Responding to Racism invites audience members into the theatrical space to support the actors as they tackle the real and confronting problem of racism.

Using stories, songs, dance and puppetry, Like Me, Like You introduces younger students to the idea of diversity in our communities, including themes of inclusion, understanding and acceptance.

Responding to Racism is an award winning interactive theatre performance that follows the story of Mik, a young Aboriginal student putting up with constant racism from his friend and football teammate Chris. Meanwhile, a new student has arrived at school, Sophia, who is stereotyped and discriminated against for wearing a headscarf. Developed by South Australian theatre company ActNow, in partnership with Reconciliation SA, Responding to Racism aims to identify, respond to and prevent racism, exploring its effects and offering prevention strategies. Tues 28 – Fri 31 May 10.15am & 12.30pm Migration Museum

This interactive performance for younger students explores all of the different people, cultures and stories that make up Australia today – from the First Nations people who have been here for thousands of years, to the new migrants who’ve just arrived!

Of All The People In All The World

“Astonishing, an installationcome-performance from one of the UK’s most tirelessly inventive theatre companies.”

By Stan's Cafe Direct from the UK, this provocative installation uses grains of rice to bring abstract statistics to startling and powerful life. A team of performers weighs out quantities of rice to represent a host of human statistics: • populations of towns and cities • number of doctors and number of soldiers • number of people born each day and number who die • number of people who have walked on the moon • number of deaths in the Holocaust Adapting to the country, city or venue in which it’s performed, students are invited to send in the statistics they would like to see represented and some of these will feature during the festival. Witty, at times shocking, and always thought provoking, this ever changing landscape of rice will engage students of all ages, causing them to reflect on their own place in the world.

Katie’s Birthday Party

Children's Theatre Reviews

It’s no party growing up – but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate! Life for a 12 year old can be a complicated, confusing time. To help navigate that path, your students are invited to Katie’s Birthday Party. Internationally acclaimed performer Mary-Frances Doherty gives a stunning solo performance in this insightful show about a young girl’s journey from childhood to adolescence. We follow Katie as she moves from primary to secondary school – there are exams, a new school, and a different friendship group to navigate, but also hope for the future.

Morris Gleitzman Loyal Creatures

Firefly Forest By Patch Theatre

When the stage hit War Horse was preparing to make its way to Australia, the story's author asked his good friend Morris Gleitzman to write a performance script about Australian horses in WWI, linking it with the play. This is that story.

Australian Children’s Laureate Morris Gleitzman is undisputedly one of Australia’s top writers for young people. DreamBIG is delighted to present an Adelaide actor reading Morris’ monologue, Loyal Creatures, followed by a talk and Q&A with the author. Students will gain a unique insight into the creation of this moving work, and the novel that grew out of it, telling the story of the bond between a boy and his horse, and the unpredictability and horror of war.

This is a positive and reaffirming experience that proves the power of music to lift the spirits, motivate the mind and bring people together. DreamBIG is delighted to be collaborating with Playford City Council and Northern Sound System to present this event. JOF will create the work with young people from the northern suburbs, providing them with skills in DJ-ing, music production and facilitation to support and lead the dance parties.

Game Theory

More information will be added to the website closer to the date.

By Joshua Monten Dance A 20 minute dance performance in which order and precision give way to chaos, havoc and a whole lot of mess. Game Theory begins simply enough – two men draw chalk squares on the ground and start playing a game of hopscotch. It’s all very structured, repetitive and civilised. Then things begin to change shape – the basic geometries and rhythms fracture and multiply as the movement becomes increasingly complicated and physically demanding. Students will be transfixed as this energetic dance and body percussion mash-up evolves bit by bit into a frenetic journey around the world, ending in a haze of hyperactive havoc. See why Game Theory has been performed at the best festivals across Europe, Latin America and the Palestinian Territories.

Tutti Arts presents a Company AT production

Impersonal Space 'Nameless’ is a nine-year-old girl who loves her family, stargazing and hot chips. But she isn't like the other children – she’s hyper intelligent but sometimes does strange things, and the bullies call her “dopey” and “weird”. She feels isolated, sad and confused, until she discovers she has autism. Taking comfort in her scientific heroes and imaginary friends Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton, Nameless sets out on a journey of the imagination to find strength in her differences and confidence in herself. Drawing on the personal experiences of its autistic cast, Impersonal Space offers a warm and funny insight into an experience shared by thousands of school-aged children.

Dance Like Everyone Seashore Is Watching

By Sally Chance Dance and Insite Arts

Feel the power of dance with moves to make you feel brave, strong and happy. When you dance like everyone is watching, you can take on the world.

Smell the sea air and imagine the sand beneath your feet as this playful group of children brings the seashore to life through dance.

Image: Prema Lucas

Once there was a little girl who loved to dance. She was always entertaining people with her incredible moves. Then she grew up and thought people didn’t want to see her dance any more. So she only danced when no one was watching. But that all changed when she found herself dancing in Rundle Mall one day – it was AMAZING. She realised that much better than dancing like no one is watching is dancing like EVERYONE is watching. Fun and connectivity is at the core of this sensational dance session from dancer and choreographer Liz Cahalan, which is set in the majestic Freemasons Main Hall.

Same Like Yesterday Virlkuthalypila and Other Stories from Our Country This colourfully animated visual performance sees six Adnyamathanha women share stories of their ancestors and the memories of growing up on their country. Same Like Yesterday is a story about six senior Adnyamathanha women and two teenage girls travelling through the Flinders Ranges in the footsteps of Virlkuthalypila, the two women from the Yuramuda (Dreamtime). Their country is woven together by an endless thread of stories. They are embedded in the land, the sky, the water, and the mountains. Even the animals hold stories from a long time ago. By following the journey of the two women, students will learn to stay safe and respect sacred sites and to help everyone gain a greater appreciation of Adnyamathanha history and culture. This work is a collaboration between women and children of the Adnyamathanha community and the Sharing Stories Foundation which works with Indigenous communities to protect, maintain and grow language, stories and cultural heritage through digital technologies and artistic forms for this and future generations. 36

SCHOOL

Connecting local students with children in India, this international initiative breaks down cultural barriers through art, understanding and friendship. South Australian students will exchange art works about their lives (including postcards, photographs, drawings and stories) with children living in Rajasthan in India. All these artistic contributions will be exhibited during the festival and simultaneously at a location in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. If you are interested in participating, please email dreambig@adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au with the subject line “Hello Rajasthan” by Friday 7 December 2018 and we will connect you with a school in Rajasthan with the help of our friends at ThinkArts India.

Teaching in and through the arts is proving to be a vital tool improving general capabilities in literacy, numeracy, personal and social capability and critical and creative thinking. Explore the possibilities of creative pedagogy to enhance your confidence and practical teaching resources in this professional development intensive for primary school teachers. This event has something for everyone – part practical showcase, part Q&A, followed by networking drinks and nibbles. Presenters include Morris Gleitzman, Australian Children’s Laureate; Dr Anita Collins, music educator and researcher; and Eliza Lovell, professional teaching artist.

Wonder

For Country, For Nation

We All Eat Cake An exhibition examining how children see themselves and others, celebrating our difference and commonality.

Honour our First Nations people with these fascinating and revealing stories of wartime and peace.

Gordon BENNETT, Psychotopographical landscape (inversion), 1990, acrylic on canvas. Courtesy the Australian War Memorial and the Samstag Museum of Art.

Wonder is an art exhibition by primary school students exploring their thoughts around the concept of “how other people see me.” Curious about others, children often wonder if others are curious about them - what do others think about me? My clothes, my food, my music, my hobbies, my traditions and my family? Is it the same as the way I see or think about myself? Wonder is an important reminder that while we may look and behave differently, we all eat cake! Featuring the work of students from local Prospect Primary Schools: Black Friars Priory School ELC–6, Prospect Primary, Prospect North Primary and Nailsworth Primary.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a long standing tradition of fighting for Country, and continue to serve with honour among our military forces. In a major exhibition from the Australian War Memorial, For Country, For Nation tells stories from the First Nations experience during wartime and peace.
