It is the one week countdown to the 38th Annual Vancouver International Children’s Festival (VICF) takes place May 25 – May 31 on Granville Island with immersive performances that invite audiences to participate in the creation process.
Twelve professional performing artists from as far-reaching as Australia, The Netherlands and Scotland will be performing 103 shows in seven of Granville Island’s indoor theatre venues.
Highlights of this year’s Festival include three interactive experiences that invite the audience to participate in the creation process. Two of these shows are local productions commissioned by the VICF – Me on the Map by Neworld Theatre and Big Bad by Boca del Lupo. The third show, I Think I Can from Australia, is a miniature railway town that works with a set of audience questions and a puppeteer to bring a unique story to life.
There are five special evening performances including two Pyjama Night Shows and (new for 2015!) the opportunity to join VICF at the Opening Night Celebration & Party.
