“Alex’s ability to enthuse and encourage children to take part in her peformances, through specially designed interactive drawings and activities, was a wonderful way to develop and foster a love of art and provide the audience with a memorable experience.”

“The children found the show fun and entertaining. The performance was well paced and the inclusion of artworks and discussion informative. Children loved being able to draw on the canvas at the conclusion. Wonderful.”

UNTITLED by Ms Kandinsky

with Alex Norman

THE PERFORMER

Ms. Kandinsky is Alex Norman – musician, actress, mother, circus artist and kids’ writer/entertainer. She may be multi talented but has always been convinced she ‘can’t do art’. This was the motivation behind the show, with an aim to instil in each and every child a confidence that ‘art is for all’ and ‘you can do it your way’.

THE PERFORMANCE

Originally commissioned by the Art Gallery of NSW for their Gallery Kids programme, ‘Untitled by Ms. Kandinsky’ is an inspirational tale of artistic A. With music and theatrics, lively audience interactive segments, a brief history of abstract art and an opportunity for everyone to create their own individual masterpiece (blank canvases provided), this enchanting one woman show has a strong positive message about art and creativity for kids.

Begin at the beginning, it’s a good place to start,
start with a dot, a squiggle or mark.
Take lines for a walk, abstract shapes will appear.
Where will it end, where to go from here?
Unthink your thinkings, set your mind free,
enjoy the journey, now that is the key!
