Wilbur the Optical Whale
Adelaide Fringe Festival
Indelabilityarts took its inclusive new children’s show “Wilbur the Optical Whale” by Karen Lee Roberts to the Adelaide Convention Centre as part of Adelaide Fringe Festival 2020.
We are so proud to share that indelabilityarts won two awards. A weekly John Chataway Innovation Award and the Adelaide Fringe 2020 Access Award for our performance of “Wilbur the Optical Whale”.
"Wilbur the Optical Whale" is a 'tale' about friendship, acceptance and celebrating difference. Wilbur and Cecil are BFF's. They are inseparable...or are they? One day while playing hide and seaweed, Wilbur and Cecil are set upon by the Starfish Meanie Gang! How do they get out of this one?
Set in an exquisitely crafted underwater world full of stunning circus tricks, digital and visual imagery, music, and interactive play, "Wilbur the Optical Whale" is an immersive, interactive, and accessible performance for children aged 3-8 years.
All performances feature integrated Auslan interpreting. Headphones are available for audience members to engage on their own terms. The set includes a quiet space as part of relaxed performance mode catering to those who may require it.
We would like to thank the following organisations for supporting and collaborating with us through this journey: Flipside Circus, Creative Access Interpreting, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Redland Performing Arts Centre, Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund, the QLD Government through Arts Qld, Brisbane City Council Creative Sparks Grant, NDIA and Civic Solutions.
