Arena Theatre Company

As one of Australia’s most renowned makers of theatre for young audiences Arena Theatre Company has been engaging with young people for over 50 years. They are powered by the twin drivers of art and audience: creating inspiring live performance and creating genuine engagement with young people. 

Arena Theatre Company’s Hidden Creature Gallery invites children to create their own animated creatures and then ‘hide’ them in Victory Park, using augmented reality technology.  Visitors can then search and find these creatures using their smart devices.

The workshops will take children through the creative process, helping them photograph an interesting feature of the park, then work with Arena’s artists to transform the photo into their own amazing animated creature. The children use motion capture technology to animate the character with their own voice and movement
