Doodle Pop (BRUSH Theatre LLC – Korean Season presented by AtoBiz Ltd)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2019

Transforming the stage into a magical whiteboard (floor included!), ‘Doodle Pop’ combines theatre and clowning with multimedia and projection to create an innovative children’s theatre show. The drawings on the whiteboard come to life, moving across the stage as easily as the actors do. On a practical level, the actors knowing exactly where to draw on the board for this to work is very impressive, and they integrate this technology very smoothly. However, there are moments where the physicality could have been further explored, such as a small dance moment which could have been expanded upon; instead they rely heavily on the multimedia – perhaps too much at times. Nevertheless, ‘Doodle Pop’ is an engaging and imaginative children’s theatre production.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug.
