Children's theatre festival comes to BACC

The country’s first full-scale international theatre festival for young audiences will take place at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Pathumwan intersection, from June 21 to July 3.

Organised by Arts On Location in collaboration with Democrazy Studio and Japan Foundation, the “Bangkok International Children’s Theatre Festival (BICT 2016)” will be packed with eight interactive theatre performances for children of different age groups from six countries. There will be nine workshops and six forums for children, their families and those who work with children and young people.

The eight performances will be staged only on the weekends. The fine-up for June 25-26, at 10.30am includes:

  Little Cat, storytelling with live music about a cat’s life, his loves, deaths and endings with visual and music accompaniment by Bird Kid Jam from Thailand.

  The Old Man’s Books, contemporary puppetry based on children’s favourite stories and characters by Papermoon Puppet Theatre from Indonesia.

  Yellow O, a shadow puppet performance especially developed for children with hearing impairments and special needs by the Wandering Moon Performing Group from Thailand.

  Recycled Rubbish, an object-led theatre performance about two excavators searching for treasures hidden among a world of rubbish by Theatre Rites from the UK.

The other four performances to be staged on July 2-3 at 1pm will be:

  The Adventure Of Yoo Dee, a mixed-media performance about the most unfortunate child in the world in pursuit of his missing loved one by B-Floor Thailand.

  When All Was Green, a non verbal puppetry telling about a boy and an apple tree by the Key Theatre from Israel.

  AliBaBach, a dance theatre performance suitable for babies to five-year-old children by Companhia De Musica Teatral from Portugal.

  Live Bone, a unique show with upbeat music and stunning costumes inspired by human internal organs by Kaiji Moriyama from Japan.

Six of the nine workshops will be conducted by the five international theatre groups. The other three workshops will be presented by Dr Sue Jennings from the UK and Channaphan Thannarat, a Thai drama therapist.

The six forums will touch on creativity and child development and the benefits of learning through drama for children. They will take place on three days — June 24 and July 2-3.

Tickets cost 450 baht (150 baht for children) for the international performances and 100 baht (50 baht for children) for local performances. There is no admission fee for the Little Cat show. However, there are charity tickets available for disadvantaged children and their families.

Most of the workshops have admission fees but all of the six forums are free of charge. For reservations, email info@bictfest.com or call 081-441-5718 and 099-009-3172.
