About the production
Children’s Cheering Carpet - Saltbush is a journey through the culture and landscape of Aboriginal Australia. The work was commissioned by the Australian Festival for Young People (Come Out 2009) in Adelaide in co- production with Teatro Metastasio Stabile della Toscana in Prato and Australian production company Insite Arts.
“Saltbush” is a plant that can be found throughout Australia in almost all Aboriginal lands, and so it represents a common thread between all the different nations of Australian indigenous peoples. This shared idea acted as a point of inspiration for the narrative, contemporary painting, dance and instrumental music that were created by the Aboriginal artists in this production.
Through its award-winning artistry in multi-media theatre for young people, TPO’s Children’s Cheering Carpet concept allows the children to interact, play and perform in the production and provides an immersive experience of the artwork. This also provides a unique experience for parents and teachers as they watch the children become involved. It is an environment of play - playing with the arts.
The narrative centers on the journey of two friends from different cultural backgrounds on foot as they cross Australia. Their journey sees them cross diverse Australian landscapes - river country, an urban landscape, desert and the sea. The journey is one of discovering the land, growing an understanding and acknowledging how it challenges or provokes personal journeys. A dramatic family getaway for metropolitan kids
