School Holiday Theatre Intensive — Emu Parade with POPOMOCO

Overview

Award-winning physical comedy group PO PO MO CO are returning to FCAC and bringing their fantastical Emu Parade with them!

Punk Emus is one of PO PO MO CO’s cheekiest acts, developing performance skills in children through character and clowning workshops.

Over the course of four days, kids will study emu movements to devise routines, small skits and dances. They will design and create their very own emu puppet costume, and yes, everyone gets to take their costume home at the end.

On the final day, kids will work collaboratively to become a spectacular public roving performance – to strut their emu feathers for all their family and friends to see.

WHEN: Monday 5 July to Thursday 8 July, 10am–3pm (2.30pm parade on the Thursday)
Before and after care available from 8.30am–10am and 3pm–5pm
