Barking Gecko July School Holiday Workshops

 

Unreal, Banana Peel! - Ages 5 - 7 

Ever had one of those days that was so strange it was “Unreal, Banana Peel”?  Using well known Australian children’s chants and rhymes from the book “Unreal, Banana Peel!”, the Little Geckos will explore every day activities through body movement and imagination and turn the usual into the utterly unusual.  What happens when you get stuck down a plughole after your bath?  What does your hair look like after knives and forks, rather than scissors, have cut it? Our Little Geckos will find out for sure!

I Like to Move it, Move it - Ages 8 - 12

Ever wanted to be a hairy ape, a three headed alien, or a totally radical made-up monster character?  Using our own bodies and shaping them into new beings, we can learn how to transform our ordinary selves into unbelievable creatures. We can build a human raft, create a desert and sail across as we invent new stories to tell with our bodies through movement, music and colourful characters.
