Bedtime Stories (Upswing)
By Aida Rocci | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
It’s bedtime in the circus tent, so lie with your family on one of the beds or beanbags and wait for a bedtime story. This one is about a little girl full of ideas, her imaginary friend and her busy mother, and it’s a dream-like story about what happens when it’s time to go to sleep. Grown-ups and children get closer together in this wondrous journey, told with the help of mesmerizing projections and playful acrobatics. Although the narrative loses power in some moments – I could sense children getting fidgety towards the end – ‘Bedtime Stories’ creates a charming experience, with something for everyone in the family.
Underbelly’s Circus Hub on the Meadows, until 22 Aug.
