At Sydney Opera House we want you and your children to have a rich artistic experience. Our free Creative Play program compliments our world class shows providing an active and creative outlet for your children, where they become the artists. Creative Play is a series of interactive installations staffed by professional artists designed to activate and inspire your children. Come and play and get creative!
Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while participating in Creative Play.JULY SCHOOL HOLIDAYS CREATIVE PLAY 28 JUNE – 13 JULY, 10am – 4pm Daily
Explore the world of shadows these school holidays with Creative Play!
Shadows are endlessly fascinating and have intrigued artists and children throughout history. This July, Creative Play explores shadows - combining shapes created by bodies and light with cutting edge gaming technology. Gathered around a giant table, children will then use their hands and bodies to create moving silhouettes that are manipulated by artists using real time computer graphics.
This colourful and interactive installation will allow children to collaborate with our professional artists to make their very own shadow art come to life in splashes of colour and mirrored movement!
Creative Play is free and can get busy. We advise that patrons allow adequate time to enjoy this artwork and all that the Sydney Opera House precinct has to offer.
