South Australian Premiere
Presented by DreamBig Children’s Festival and Country Arts SA
Inspired by the classic electronic game Tetris, Arch 8’s incredible acrobatic quartet explores how we connect with one another through movement, humour and some awesome audience participation where kids become part of the action.
The extreme physicality, energy and enthusiasm of the performers is contagious, delighting audiences as they watch what begins as a game of interlocking shapes unfold.
Receiving enthusiastic responses everywhere they appear, and winner of ‘Best Show’ at the International Performing Arts for Youth 2016 (Canada), Tetris is for the kids who can’t
sit still, for the ones who like to climb the walls, for the ones who like seeing patterns and those who can imagine further than they can see.
Years: R – 7

What links can you find between Tetris and the Australian Curriculum to weave into your curriculum planning? Here’s a couple of ideas:
How do the performers connect together to form a ‘network’ or ‘transmit data’?
Arts – Dance = What idea or story is the acrobatic group telling us? How do the performers connect together to form a ‘network’ or ‘transmit data’? Is it a cultural or community story? What movement ideas are used?
Conduct an internet search (include YouTube) about Tetris video games of 1984…!
