Terrapin is delighted to be part of the Tasmanian International Arts Festival by staging I Think I Can in Hobart and Burnie this month.
Created by Sam Routledge and Martyn Coutts, I Think I Can is an interactive installation that invites the public to engage and play by becoming temporary residents via a tiny puppet. Through puppetry, live video, and active audience interaction, this innovative public artwork asks â€œWhat would you like to be today?â€ engaging participants in an optimistic task of collective storytelling that deals with dynamic notions of residency and responsibility.
I Think I Can will be in the Elizabeth Street Mall in Hobart on:
Friday 20 March, 10am-1pm (schools only) and 5pm-8pm
Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 March, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm
Monday 23 March, 10am-1pm (schools only) and 2pm-5pm
and at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre on:
Friday 27 March, 10am-1pm (schools) and 5pm-8pm
Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm
It's suitable for children aged 7+ and their families, and it's free! More information here. You can also read the stories created in each city's online newspaper at www.ithinkicanonline.com.
I Think I Can is presented by Ten Days in association with Junction Arts Festival and Queenstown Heritage and Arts Festival. The Hobart season is presented in partnership with Hobart City Council, and the Burnie season is presented in association with Burnie Arts & Function Centre.
