Shows

Polyglot Theatre creates playful, interactive and spectacular experiences for children and families.

We have a repertoire of performance works that are available for touring and presentation, and come in two distinct forms.

  • Play Spaces

    Polyglot’s Play Space works are conceptual, durational productions that use simple materials and elegant frameworks to allow for instinctive physical participation and fun. They explore freedom of choice and the power of art in public spaces and between generations, and can grow new audiences by removing many traditional barriers to access.

    Our Play Space works invite children to create their own imaginative adventure as part of the fantastical worlds we offer. The works are intuitive - unfolding and revealing themselves over time, and allowing for a different experience each time a child interacts with the work.

  • Immersive Theatre

    Polyglot develops sophisticated theatre that places the audience as central to the story. Our immersive works acknowledge the adult/child relationship and engage audiences physically and emotionally, resulting in memorable experiences and powerful responses. These works are intensely theatrical; creating transformative environments with drama, scenography, light and sound.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
