O-Musubi Kororin - Rice ball tumble tumbling

 A unique hands-on and interactive performance of this much-loved Japanese folk tale in rhyming English with Japanese vocab scattered throughout. Anne¹s humorous narration is supported by projections of beautiful drawings. Students sing, dance and play traditional Japanese instruments in accompaniment to this cautionary tale of greed and its consequences.


An adventure Fairy Tale with a kind old man, treasure, singing mice, greed and a mystery ending...

"The children were totally engaged, loved playing the instruments and the active participation. They were delighted with the story line and were able to retell the story very well and write their own interesting endings." Edithvale Primary School, Vic.

"This amazing, interactive performance had the students completely engrossed. Anne's creativity, musical ability and Japanese language skills are outstanding." Greenmount PS

"Action packed with many "hands on" experiences for the students. A thoroughly professional and exciting learning experience." Living Waters Lutheran College, WA.

"The performance was great... there was a lot of humour going on in there! Some kids got up and made background noises, some danced and some just so involved with laughing! ...we all had a great time." Roberts McCubbin Primary School, Vic. See full review.

The little ones bring wonder to the show, and the older ones bring skills... a magic combo!  The music making that results with older kids present is much more satisfying. The little ones feel thoroughly empowered by being supported by the older students' skills, and the older students get a lot more joy from sharing the fun with the younger ones.
