Family Fiesta launches into space these school holidays at MPAC!

Family Fiesta is Monash University Performing Arts Centres’ annual takeover of children’s live and participatory art and performance – all at very low ticket prices or free – from 3 – 6 July. This year sees a stellar line up of artists and scientists collaborating on theatre, music and art that will take young audiences to interplanetary worlds on a mission of space discovery. All underpinned by accurate science. For  0-12 year olds and their families.

The mainstage show Little Blue Dot is commissioned by MPAC and created by Lemony S Puppet Theatre with Monash University’s School of Physics and Astronomy. Comedian Dilruk Jayasinha hosts cosmic concert, The Planets and Other Space Music. Special guest Scienceworks (Museums Victoria) is bringing a chunk of real meteorite, for kids to wrap their hands around, and presenting two lunar inspired experiences Lunar Station and Moon Moves. Interactive art installations Space Play and Star Weavers will fill the foyers. Pianist and composer Nat Bartsch plays her new album for pre-schoolers in the Sound Gallery, Forever, and No Time At All.  With demonstrations of real Lunar and Mars rovers at the festival site, presented by space engineering team Monash Nova Rover. Families can experience this fantastic program and more at the Ian Potter Centre of Performing Arts

Tickets prices: Free – $20, available in advance and on the day
