Round The Moon Blue The Sky

Just yesterday, we caught the theatrical show Round the moon Blue the sky. A theatre play where we journeyed with smallest dragon's ever curious questions on Why, How and What? She pokes her nose into things and is curious about the world. One night she sees the moon, and wonders why it is the shape that is. Fascinated, she sets off to find other round things, discovering the many other important shapes too. As she explores new things with her friends, Leaf and Twiglet, she also discovers the wonder of colours!

It's all about exploring and discovering my little ones, not Mummy or Daddy for answers!

The show not only engaged black light magic, which showed beautiful props when lights were off, it was also highly interactive. Little audiences were really responsive to their questions. There was a moment when they asked for 2 audience volunteers to explore shapes with them, creating something out of shapes. Under my Mum's pressure, Jazz went forward to volunteer. OMG! When did she become this courageous?!! It was a memorable sight to watch her in limelight for a while.

The characters demonstrated how they convinced their friend on the many other round things around them, like bubbles. Not just the moon. They showed that leaf isn't always green, fallen leaves are brown and that there are many more blue things, not just the sky. It definitely moved little minds into the mode of thinking.

The whole show was played with very little actual conversations between the characters, only important key words or sentences were spoken. It's a joint collaboration between, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore artists. So yeap, that explained the different foreign accents heard. In addition to the focus given on shapes and colours, the show might be a little slow playing. Which I thought might be better for the really little ones, maybe below six.
The show lasted about 45 minutes and Jare didn't get enough of it, he asked for more! Jazz on the other hand, left contented and happy. I bet they learned and gained something out of the show. They yakked non-stop about it during our journey to lunch and till home. Gosh, spare my ears!
