Who’s missing the theatre? Here’s a creative spark to light up your home (and the kids’ faces!) from the amazingly talented team at HOTA and friends which will take you all on a little adventure to an imaginative world – all from the comfort of your own home. Get ready to crawl through tunnels, cross lava pits (in your imagination), because all you need is a computer or tablet, a bed sheet, paper, favourite colouring in pencils and your ticket to fun.

HOTA, Home of the Arts has just launched this new audio-led theatre experience, Mountain Goat Mountain, for families across the Gold Coast and beyond, developed during isolation by Australian company, Threshold. (you weren’t the only one dreaming of ways to escape reality!)

The unique theatre experience takes families with young children on an interactive journey, through a series of activities that help families set up and step into their own magical, imaginative world.

Guided by a narrative soundscape, families will embark on the 45-minute theatrical experience using only a charged audio device, bed sheet, a piece of blank paper and pencils, pens or textas. Participants will crawl through tunnels, cross lava pits and swim through under water caves, all without leaving home!

Mountain Goat, Mountain was created by artists, Zoë Barry, Liz Francis, Nikita Hederics, Tahli Corinand Sarah Lockwood for Threshold, this adventurous performance was developed with support of a national collaboration by art organisations, including HOTA, Arts Centre Melbourne, Adelaide Festival Centre’s Dream BIG Children’s Festival and AWESOME International Children’s Festival.

Audiences can access Mountain Goat Mountain via the HOTA website from 12.00pm on Thursday 14 May. For more information, visit www.hota.com.au.
