The Arts Centre Gold Coast Children's Series proudly sponsored by McDonald's Gold Coast presents Me & My Shadow By Patch Theatre Company
Children love to play with shadows. They are mysterious and magical and can do amazing things! But making friends with your shadow can be a tricky business. There are things to sort out, negotiations to be made, frustrations to be overcome, problems to solve, adventures to be had and laughter to be shared.
Me and My Shadow is presented in the form of a visual poem for children. The show tells its story using the languages of paper, light, shadow, colour, water, music, sound and words. With fantastical imagery, quirky physical performances and an intriguing score, Me and My Shadow, seeks to ignite the imaginations of 4-8 year olds in a poetical experience that explores the frustrations and joys of friendship.
A feast for the eyes that reaches straight, crystal clear to the hearts of all ages. David O’Brien – Db Review
Helpmann Award Winner in Town In 2011 Patch’s production of Me and My Shadow won the national Helpmann Award for the Best Presentation for Children after sell-out seasons at the Sydney Opera House and The Arts Centre in Melbourne. Adelaide audiences have been able to catch this award-winning show too at the Adelaide Festival Centre during the April school holidays. The season was a huge success and a complete sell-out.
It’s such a rich piece of work, it’s hard to know where to begin with this Patch Theatre production, which had its young audience shrieking with delight. The visuals are astounding! Sydney’s Daily Telegraph
