Carnival of the Animals – Out of the Box 2014 | THE REVIEW
Are you looking for a WOW moment for your Brisbane Kid? Or an event they will remember and treasure as one of their fondest childhood memories? The Out of the Box Children’s Festival 2014 presents the world premiere of Carnival of the Animals; a spellbinding and mesmerising performance from the Brisbane based Circa company.
Carnival of the Animals takes you on a wild ride around the world visiting various countries and exciting animals with a back drop of stunning digital animations and beautiful music. This acrobatic marvel is a spectacle not to be missed.
As the lights dimmed and the music started, a lone clown wanders onto the stage, commanding the audience’s attention before a whirlwind of acrobatic feats draw you in and have you sitting on the edge of your seat one minute and roaring with laughter the next. The little voices around us filled the darkness with “oohhs” and “aahhs” and many “wow’s!” As the performers twisted and contorted, sprang and leapt across the stage, the audience followed a huge variety of animals in their habitats across the world. From the Polar Regions to the depths of the oceans, and the tops of the trees down to the desserts, and even into a circus arena, Carnival of the Animals takes you into the amazing world of animals. As the lights returned and the performance ended the whispers of excited children started again. “That was magic!” “Another one mummy, can we see it again?!” “Wow awesome…”.
Carnival of the Animals is about wild imagination, explosions of magic and comical humour that speaks to everyone, especially children. There are fun audience participation moments contrasted with sombre beauty and then rollicking humour. Carnival of the Animals is one of those has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed type performances. It is so incredibly special and unique it will be a huge hit with the entire family.
A WOW moment to live in their hearts forever…
