The Art House presents

Holiday Island

Created by Ali Gordon and Alicia Gonzalez

As part of the Summer at The Art House program

A clown yearns for a summer getaway, so she decides to create it herself. With nine colourful suitcases in tow, she builds an imaginary world of play, relaxation and togetherness: Holiday Island.

Like a silent film, driven by a nostalgic soundtrack, kids and their families will be treated to an uplifting and perfectly silly beach adventure, completely indoors.

Be transported to a place built from scraps of memory, hidden inside a pile of suitcases. Throughout the show, eager kids may be invited on stage, leaving the more reserved folk to enjoy the action from their seats.

Workshop available as part of a show + workshop package $22.00 

Clowning Workshop - Tuesday 24th January 11.15AM + Wednesday 25th January 11.15AM 

*note: parents do not require a workshop ticket but will require an adult ticket for admission to the show

“My small grandchildren loved it… ‘wonder what’s in the next suitcase?’ Lots of cases, lots of surprises.” – Susan Blamey, Grandmother

“Watching Ali took me outside of myself and transported me to another time and place; one where the worries of the world just drift away” – Dan Challis, Musician

“Engaging and entertaining! The kids will love it! Ali is very talented and knows how to make people LAUGH!” – Tamara Hawkins, Mum

“Holiday Island is a show that is a celebration of enjoying every moment and every moment is enjoyable. The physical comedy and dance accompanied by an irresistible soundtrack is humorous and playful. The solo character has a wonderful audience connection and is able to be surprisingly cheeky but is always completely loveable. Stylistically this is a beautifully designed visual and engaging work that transcends the need for language. Fun for the whole family!” – David Wells, Performing Artist
