2:00 pm Merredin Children are Stinky

CHILDREN ARE STINKY
Fresh from Edinburgh Fringe with five stars and The Children’s Choice award, Children are Stinky is an exciting new comedy by Circus Trick Tease
High caliber circus, a rocking sound track, and genuine belly laughs have propelled these stinkers onto sold out shows every single season. Suitable for ages 3-12, this “supercharged show stopper” (**** Adelaide Advertiser ) will delight adults and children alike.

April Dawson and Kyle Raftery deliver a powerhouse of circus talent. Expect dare devil stunts, incredible acrobatics, lighting fast hula hoops, and loads of laughs. Sleek stagecraft combined with mischievous fun leave audiences wondering “how is that even possible?” (Daniel, Age 7)

‘Children are Stinky’ is hands down the most spectacular reverse psychology experiment you have ever seen.

The duo’s attempts to prove that kids are stinky are met with messy, ridiculous, hysterical twists. They only succeed in proving that children are awesome…and they know it!

Set in the 1990’s, in-jokes and cleverly choreographed nostalgic mash-up hooks parents in for a rollicking trip down memory lane. This enjoyable family show encourages children to be proud of themselves and their stinkyness!

Show starts @ 2:00pm

Tickets are $15 and available online or in persona to Cummins Theatre or Central Wheatbelt Visitor Centre

Cummins Theatre, Bates Street Merredin

12:30 pm Merredin Picasso & His Dog

PICASSO AND HIS DOG
One fine spring morning in 1957, Lump arrived for lunch. Lump was an elongated sausage dog with floppy ears and an inquisitive nature. He looked around at Picasso’s villa and then into the deep, brown eyes of the man himself and decided he was home. From this first meeting, a deep love was forged between Picasso and Lump. He was also an inspiration for Picasso, appearing in fifty-four of the artist’s works. Lump lived with Picasso for 16 years. In a perfect ending, perhaps not content with life on earth without each other, both died in the same year.

Inspired by this true story, Picasso and His Dog, is a delightful show that celebrates the animals with whom we share our lives while exploring what it is to be creative and to create.

This work is a unique children’s puppet play that combines the art and story of Picasso with the extraordinary poems of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda and the text of Picasso’s contemporary and lifelong friend, Gertrude Stein. It is a refreshingly original work, wild and adventurous. Initially set in Picasso’s studio in the south of France, the story travels across time and space in a series of imaginative leaps using puppetry to transform the detailed set design as the performers play with scale, shadow puppetry, visual illusions, painting and sculpting on stage.

Doors Open: 12:30pm
Show: 1:00pm
Duration: 1hr
Ages: 4+
