Cerita Anak is an immersive show for young children and their adults. This show is a collaboration between Polyglot (Australia) and Papermoon Puppet Theatre (Indonesia) over the last 2 years. All the music has been written for this project, along with designing a 6.1 surround audio system.
Ideas explored in this project involved telling story across age and cultural boundaries. Having both a young audience and their adults and creating a meaningful and emotional journey whilst being sensitive to the needs and providing an inclusive and supporting sound track was challenging. This has been an area of exploration whilst working with Polyglot over the last few years.
An amazing journey while developing, collecting stories, exploring ideas in Yogyakarta and prototyping at ArtPlay (Melbourne).
