AWESOME FESTIVAL 2022 | Hutan | 4 Stars

Review | Laura Money

We are all here in the forest. Hutan is a felt and puppet recreation of a Singaporean forest, complete with animals, rain, and leafy canopies. Children are encouraged to explore through gentle play and a series of dances and music that capture the senses and prove that the forest is a beautiful and fascinating place.

This show is the definition of inclusive – each child (and some adults!) are given a name label and welcomed by name into the forest with a welcome song. The music is gentle but reflective of different elements of the forest – getting louder and more rhythmic with the rain and the gibbons, and softer with sunrise. There are puppets to discover and interact with, each animal bringing a different energy to the forest scape.

As Hutan draws to a close, everyone feels a sense of wholeness and wellbeing that nature can gift. It’s a gentle exploration of a unique place that will remain in your heart.

Hutan – A Sensory Forest Adventure is on at Boola Bardip, WA Museum until 1st October 2022. TICKETS

The Fourth Wall acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we engage in storytelling on – the Wadjhuk people of the Noongar nation. We pay respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.

Keep up with The Fourth Wall on Facebook and @fourth_wall_media on Instagram to see what we’re up to in 2022.
