'One Starry Night' is excellent for ALL the family
"I have seen a lot of performances in Shanghai and most of the time I go With a limited expectation of children's theatre. I went along to the Grand Theatre with mild hope but was pleasantly rewarded. This performance firstly was packed to the rafters, thus reflecting the popularity. Secondly, it was incredibly engaging and a brilliant way for the whole family to learn about art."
"Don't be put off by the poster. There is a simple yet engaging story between the two characters and they had a great way of making the show immersive and interactive whenever they could. The show is performed in English, but there is a limited dialogue, so it is also perfect for both Chinese and expat families."
"The show begins with a magnificent concert pianist playing a range of live musical pieces that supplement the show; From Mozart to Chopin, accompany the show perfectly. The art ranges from Monet to Seurat and is mostly impressionist in nature. I learned about Georges Seurat and classical music. "
"All of the children eagerly participated in the interactive painting with the paintbrush provided. I rarely manage to satisfy my child and wife with theatre, but I accomplished this. My favourite part was the interactivity of the Kandinsky circles as it began to rain ping pong balls. "
"They also used lighting brilliantly and imaginatively to convey the ambience of 'Starry starry night' by Van Gogh and project stars on to the ceiling.
All in all, it is creative and imaginative and encourages your child into appreciating art. That is something I have never seen successfully done for small children, but this production has done it. If your child is studying art in IB PYP, you can learn a whole unit in one performance."
