The Polar Bears Go Up

Get ready to fall in love with these two adorable polar bears! They’ve lost their prized balloon and they need to get it back. Plenty of laughs ensue as the pair come up with increasingly off-the-wall ways to reach their friend. They climb trees, jump on clouds, reach for the stars, bounce and boogie their way to the top, while stopping for sandwiches along the way, of course! With no words, the artists skillfully and playfully tell the bears’ story and create a magical world where anything is possible. Children will be swept away in this charming, visual show. One thing is for sure, the only way is up! 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.
