Imaginary are thrilled to announce that their new theatre production for children aged 6-12 and their families 'Horrendo's Curse' will be performed as a work in progress showing at Brisbane Powerhouse's World Theatre Festival in February 2013!
Imaginary Theatre are teaming up with Brisbane theatre-makers Lucas Stibbard and Neridah Waters (Elephant Gun, Boy Girl Wall) to bring a tale of pirates and politeness to the stage.
Come and be a part of the first public work-in-progress showing of Horrendo's Curse – a swashbuckling, gastronomic adventure adapted from the novel by Anna Fienberg. Created specifically for 6-12 year olds, this contemporary re-think of the age-old pirate genre will combine high-paced storytelling and digital projection to tell the tale of a boy cursed with politeness.
