1. Follow Fruit with Fig (ages 0-2)

This interactive 30-minute performance amalgamates the visual and performing arts that will transport you and your little ones to a world where food is at the heart of exploration and play. Yum!

2. Ninni Ninni (ages 2-4)

Running from 20th to 29th November, Ninni Ninni is a non-verbal performance based on the popular Maltese Christmas carol, Ninni La Tibkix Izjed. Fun fact: the word ‘ninni’ also used widely by Maltese parents to lull babies to sleep. Inspired by this, the show is a multi-disciplinary project that amalgamates the world of jazz and animation, exploring how lullabies from around the world cater for the meaning of the phrase. You definitely don’t want to miss Ninni the polar bear’s dream journey!

4. The Stage Door (age 8+)

Get down and dirty with this online mentorship programme for children in the art of cabaret. Kids will be encouraged to use their own ideas, as well as their own awareness and concerns about their lives and the world they live in, to create original, bold and satirical performances. Kids will engage in step-by-step tutorials in different areas such as directing, scriptwriting, songwriting, dance choreography, costumes and props. By the end of The Stage Door, participants will be able to create their own fun and original cabaret show from home. How cool is that?
