Gateway Stage Kids

At the end of the module, the children’s learning culminates in a mini presentation for parents. Each 10-week module focuses on a different learning objective. Join us in learning the three C’s of Drama: Confidence, Creativity and Compassion, at Gateway Stage Kids.

Gateway Theatre 3rd Birthday

Gateway Theatre is turning 3 years old this July, and we are celebrating the number 3! 3 is a magical number because of good things are found in 3s. For example, in theatre, plays often have 3 Acts. In writing, there is the “rule of 3”, a technique to get a laugh or make you remember something. Most stories have 3 parts; a beginning, a middle and an end, and there are usually 3 wishes to be granted, just like in Aladdin, or 3 guesses from Rumpelstiltskin. Not forgetting some memorable “3” characters: Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, the 3 Billy Goats Gruff, 3 Blind Mice, and the 3 Musketeers!

At Gateway Theatre’s 3rd Birthday we are excited to present 3 Chapters for your viewing pleasure and participation. All our programmes will be online and will go LIVE at a specific time, so lock in the date and join us for our party!

Venue: SISTIC Live
Date: 18 July 2020
Time: 10am, 11am, 12pm

Loo is a hot, dry wind from Asia that comes alive on summer afternoons. The show is a poetic exploration of the changes this wind can cause: moving the desert sand dunes, drying up wetlands and jungles, leaving ships buried in sandy oceans, unable to sail.

Set around the bow of a sunken boat in a sea of sand, the show uses evocative music, buried objects and stunning visual effects, to give its audience a first-hand experience of the destructive effect of this wind… and a chance to understand how and why the Loo blows.

Quote: ‘A spectacle without words, minimalist, poetic and of extraordinary beauty.’ by Reccomana.cat on Artica

Here I Am

A visual arts workshop where children will create their own self-portrait to be digitised and hung as part of a growing exhibition demonstrating the complexity of children’s self-expression and cultural plurality. This workshop extends themes of self-reflection, diversity, multiplicity and community as well as building fundamental skills in self-portraiture and watercolors.

The large scale growing installation develops each day with the artworks of the previous day. The concept of this artwork shows the diversity of faces in our community as well as the perspective of each child artist and how they see themselves.

This workshop was created by QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane.

In this hands-on workshop, children paint their own self portrait. In doing so, they're asked to reflect on questions like: How do I want to be seen in the world? How is my face a reflection of who I am? How do I feel?

Here I Am celebrates the wonderful diversity in our society and at the same time, explores each individual in their own right. We all may have different eyes, hair and skin, but we play the same, smile the same and laugh the same.

Here I Am invites us to consider that the way our children perceive themselves may be very different to how we see them from the outside.

This workshop was created by QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival in Brisbane.

Praveen Kumar is a Bangalore based stand-up comedian who has done about 1400 shows all around the globe. His family-friendly clean comedy is a total hit! 4 specials in, he has currently started touring for his fifth one.
