Spark: Glow & Tell

An interactive light-filled storytelling adventure.

Blending the magic of light and simplicity of storytelling, students are placed at the centre of this engaging interactive experience. Using UV light, in a custom-built tent, the classroom is transformed into an intimate performance space, where stories and imagined worlds come alive as glowing drawings appear on the walls and floor. Following the performance, students are invited to create and illustrate their own stories in glowing UV light.

There are two versions of Glow & Tell, created by artists Edgell Junior Edgell and Evyenia Stefanidis – each version shares a unique story exploring themes of family and culture.


Spark is a series of portable, interactive arts experiences, designed in collaboration with artists to provide innovative creative learning opportunities in schools. 

Spark in-school workshops bring the magic of theatre straight to the classroom. From storytelling to scavenger hunts, performance provocations and dazzling light and technology-based learning, Spark inspires and engages students, sparking creativity while providing a live performance experience and innovative hands-on activities.
