Cardboard, paper and sticky tape!

My first experience of Polyglot was the Cat City project at Melbourne Zoo in 2018 having been introduced to the company by a friend. I loved seeing the interaction between the artists, children and their families and how lives became transformed using cardboard, paper, sticky tape and lots and lots of imagination! The children had a ball exploring in safe space as they created a world designed for cats. The children [and many adults] were totally absorbed in the world of Cat City and when a dog [Sue] appeared the rivalry was real! It was wonderful to watch a young boy create an elaborate safe space to keep this intruder out!
