“Nadia, Houdini like, got a child who does not speak, to become a part of the storytelling. His teacher and I couldn't believe what we were seeing. She's the benchmark that everyone else needs to aspire to.”
— Librarian, Seven Hills State School, Brisbane
Brought to you by LittleLeaf Productions and inspired by The Last Tree, a short story from celebrated Australian author Bruce Pascoe, The Collectors is an immersive narrative experience crafted for children aged 3 - 8 years that explores themes of community and environment through the art of storytelling and letter writing.
Two sisters, Sprig and Magnolia, are travelling from the village of LittleLeaf with their suitcase of special things. This tattered case is full of wondrous, whimsical and fantastic treasures…all of them carefully collected and rich with story. There’s a jar of aromatic red tea concocted from Adeline Eden’s herb garden; a hand-carved wooden box that keeps a secret; a tiny jar of golden honey lovingly collected from Horatio’s bees; and an egg that's…well it’s…suspiciously like something a Gillywobbler would leave behind!
Incorporating pre-engagement classroom/library activities, crafted visual installations, whimsical costuming, props and an interactive presentation & workshop children will experience various types of oral and written stories, rhyming verse, songs and an immersive narrative of exceptional quality.
