Poggle

Come on an adventure inspired by nature! Vince wants to explore the forest but he’s too scared.  Until one day he meets Poggle, a friendly creature who helps him overcome his fears and together they explore the forest and the magical musical tree.  Share a special moment with your little one in a world filled with play, exploration and wonder.  With live music, clapping rhythms and bubble popping throughout, Poggle will take you on a magical and visual journey.  Children are even invited to explore the forest too and discover the hidden secrets within the set after the show. Follow Poggle and his friend as they find the joy in nature and strength in themselves. Watch the video below.

  • Our Relaxed Performance is a specially designed and adapted performance that welcomes audience members who benefit from a more relaxed performance experience, including children on the autism spectrum or with sensory and communication disorders. A more casual and relaxed environment is welcomed in the performance space where audience noise and movement is okay and adaptations are made to light and sound effects. The Vancouver International Children’s Festival is committed to making performances accessible to all, and we are excited to include this sensory-friendly performance in our lineup this year.

If you have a little one, they’ll love this. If not, borrow one for an hour and pop along to ‘Poggle’. You’ll love it too.

~ Three Weeks

This production for the very young, goes a wonderfully imaginative extra mile in its mix of bouncy dance-theatre, cunningly versatile design, live music and audience participation.
