There is no sitting on a stool for this poet; she is on her feet, punctuating poignant points with puppets, props and her own personal panache. She’s out to bridge the gap between nursery rhymes and poetry. She even delivers one poor nursery rhyme in a slam poetry style all in the aim of making poetry, rhymes and songs super fun.
The imagery of each poem is enhanced by lavish and occasionally outrageous costumes all designed to captivate and engage today’s screen obsessed generation. Regardless of whether the poem is modern or hundreds of years old, a funny limerick or reflective and a little bit sad it is accompanied by an illusion, acted out, performed to music or to the making of paper animals. There is always something visual happening to engross the audience.
While Kindy Rhymes and Fun Times is not a workshop it has audience participation encouraging students to join in and demonstrates that playing with language is heaps of fun.
Excellent. A great mix of rhyming sounds, songs and language. The children were focused and involved in the show. It was lots of fun and the children thoroughly enjoyed it.
