Hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties at Hor­sham Town Hall

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham Town Hall will present fam­ily at­trac­tions for Wim­mera peo­ple plan­ning to stay at home for win­ter school holidays.

Ac­tiv­i­ties en­cour­age chil­dren to do ev­ery­thing from build­ing a fort or bak­ing a cake to creat­ing some­thing mag­i­cal.

A key hol­i­day high­light at the town hall is a show for ‘cubby cre­ators’ and ‘den dwellers’.

Ask­ing for Trou­ble arts com­pany will present FORT, a circus and phys­i­cal theatre pro­duc­tion that delves into the art of play and the cre­ation of worlds from ev­ery­day ob­jects.

The ba­sis of the show, at 10.30am and 2.30pm on July 4, is about two strange char­ac­ters that ap­pear hunt­ing for ad­ven­ture.

In a se­ries of vignettes, a couch, ta­ble, cush­ions, sheets and broom­sticks trans­form into rock­ets, tram­po­lines, cliffs and tents – places to ex­plore. Images ap­pear and dis­ap­pear.

Pro­mot­ers de­scribe FORT as ‘full of ridicu­lous clown­ing, spec­tac­u­lar ac­ro­bat­ics and po­etic vis­ual im­agery that cel­e­brates the kind of kid ge­nius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into vol­ca­noes, trees into cas­tles and card­board boxes into rac­ing cars’.

Ask­ing for Trou­ble’s pre­vi­ous shows Bub­blewrap and Boxes and KAPOW! both won best fam­ily show awards at Mel­bourne Fringe fes­ti­val and have toured to crit­i­cal ac­claim.

Tick­ets to FORT are $20 or $15 con­ces­sion and fam­ily tick­ets for two adults and two chil­dren are $60.

FORT is part of the Hor­sham Town Hall Win­ter School Hol­i­day Pro­gram that in­cor­po­rates Hor­sham Re­gional Art Gallery.

Gallery di­rec­tor Adam Hard­ing is en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren aged five to 12 to let their imag­i­na­tions run wild with cre­ative and en­ter­tain­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for the win­ter holidays.

“Let them en­joy en­er­getic and en­gag­ing per­for­mances, try their hand at cook­ing and ex­plore a wide range of art classes all while keep­ing your lounge room glit­ter free,” he said.

Art ac­tiv­i­ties cost $12 or $10 for mem­bers and con­ces­sion. Ac­tiv­i­ties have limited spa­ces and prices in­clude all ma­te­ri­als.
