Catching feelings is harder than you think, but when your friend grows wings and you meet a Vegetable King, anything is possible…
Yella and the Feeling Flower is a journey into the world of emotions – how to find them, name them and keep them safe – even the yukky ones.
Created with a team of early childhood development professionals and the support of VicHealth, this show explores emotional literacy in an original, heartwarming and clever story that features a culturally diverse cast and a collection of beautiful songs in English and Samoan.
The creative team consists of award-winning playwright and director Jolyon James (Robot Song), choreographer Michael Ralph, Samoan actor Michael Logo and writer/performers Bridget a’Beckett and Sharni Page.
We hope The Empathy Project can be useful for families to give children tools for managing and expressing their feelings and provide parents a relatable way to talk to children about the very important information they need to understand.
