School-Time Performance Series

No Discounts for School-Time Performance.

Poli and Pola don’t want to go to sleep. The siblings start off playing with toys in their bedroom, competing against each other to be the leader of the room, but then their imagination takes them on a surreal dreamlike journey full of surprise and joy. In this non-verbal performance, BRUSH Theatre uses interactive projection technology, combined with special effects to transform the set from an empty room to far away islands, roaring seas, the Egyptian desert, busy cities, dance parties, and more! But the duo don’t know there’s something else lurking in the shadows… a ferocious alien monster! What will they do?

This colorful and playful new theater production includes live musicians who perform an original score and create sound effects, as well as stunning interactive animations and painted projection mapping, all performed with an abundance of BRUSH theatre‘s delightful theatrical imagination. Produced & performed by BRUSH Theatre, Seoul, South Korea

This special opportunity opens our School-Time Performance of POLI POP to families.
