The Ball Room
Children and adults alike are invited to enter a calming, theatrical and sensory space where ball-shapes are inspiration for play. The Ball Room is a free event designed for children from 2-8 years of age at Art Play as part of this year's Moomba Festival.

The ball is considered as a symbol of play that crosses cultural, language and gender-based boundaries and is accessible to all. The Ball Room, therefore, is a contemporary theatrical space for children and adults. Participants can embark on a journey through highly theatrical environments that inspire the imagination. For an idea of the experience, you can view this Vimeo video.

Performers express a poetic narrative as you follow the trajectory of over 2,000 balls onto the stage. Crafted to a stimulating soundscore and accompanied by live musicians, this experience will have you bouncing to a beat and dreaming of ballrooms from yesteryear.
