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.


Paper and Tape

This workshop uses paper and construction techniques to explore theatrical worlds through play.

Polyglot artists take students through a series of fun activities to make creations using only paper and tape. With puppetry techniques of focus and breath, students bring their characters to life. In groups, they collaboratively design and build environments and landscapes for their creations to live in, sharing narratives with each other through performance activities.

To maximise our impact and exchange with school communities, Polyglot is moving away from single session workshop bookings. A two-day minimum booking requirement is now in place. To allow us to engage across year levels or with the entire school community, artistic residencies of at least a week are preferred.
