As part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Art Play are offering the most awesome immersive, interactive journey through the human digestive system, from top to bottom, created by the very clever artists ‘Born in a Taxi’.
You are promised a morning of physical theatre where the kids get to travel through about 110 meters of “intestine”, watch real bacteria projected directly onto the stomach lining, and then get rather gracefully ejected out of the sphincter! I know ..and with the sound effects too!
She's going in
How awesome to have the opportunity to be turned into poo. No! I mean… how awesome that our children can explore their creativity and share unique artistic experiences with professional artists, in such a wonderful, up close and personal space?
Inside the gut!
This performance was not only hysterically funny, a bit yucky at times, and pretty warm, it was also a wonderful lesson in the human body, which I know my 8-year-old learnt a lot from. To be able to get inside the gut, with two hilarious ‘Gut Guides’ is by far the best way to learn, and the Q & A session afterwards just went on to prove how awesome an experience this was.
This project is part of ArtPlay’s New Ideas Lab program, where artists are supported to create new work with children and families.
