Kaleidoscope Ensemble

The Kaleidoscope Ensemble is a West Australian troupe of musicians, actors, mime artists, puppeteers and story-tellers performing for children and the young at heart.

Description

Since 2003 the Perth based Kaleidoscope Ensemble has been performing and running workshop projects for young people. The ensemble’s aim is to enrich the lives of young Australians, presenting performances of the highest quality, which not only entertain, but inspire children to sing, or want to learn musical instruments, act and perform themselves, to read, think about their environment, and to be creative.

Gillian Catlow, the artistic director and founder of the ensemble, grew up in Sydney. She was a founding member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, before moving to Europe where she studied and worked as a freelance violinist in Austria and Germany for 20 years. In 1997 Gillian settled in Perth and established herself as a teacher and performer.

Originally a string quartet and actor, Kaleidoscope, as the name suggests, has undergone many changes, as new ideas develop and various performers pursue exciting adventures in other parts of the world. What has remained constant is Kaleidoscope's passion and enthusiasm for discovering new stories and thinking up different ways to share them with you. 

But don't be fooled into thinking Kaleidoscope's performances are strictly for children - the Ensemble's latest production HERMAN AND ROSIE is a musical feast of great tunes from the 40s and 50s played by a fabulous six piece jazz combo featuring the wonderful Libby Hammer. Australian author/illustrator Gus Gordon's acclaimed tale is brought to life in an unforgettable way, which will delight listeners of all ages.
