Enchanting illumination and mystical darkness will unfold as Patch Theatre’s latest creation ZOOM opens across Adelaide and regional South Australia.
ZOOM is a captivating story inspired by Crockett Johnson’s much-loved children’s picture book Harold and the Purple Crayon. A child is alone in her bedroom, unable to sleep and curious to understand. When a lost star arrives in the middle of the night, adventures happen and with the assistance of the audience, the girl discovers a community of people who can help her return the star home.
Using original music, lasers and projections, ZOOM is the first work by Patch’s new Artistic Director and lighting virtuoso, Geoff Cobham.
Geoff Cobham explains “Each child will receive their own interactive light which will aid as a little spark that keeps them safe and helps guide them through the interactive sessions of the show. We want to show them how the dark can be a magical place where dreams are made and that light is at its most beautiful when it’s surrounded by darkness.”
