A celebration of community, Pram People rolls out the red carpet for every pram, big or small.

Pram users assemble en masse, following curious and wonderful prompts through headphones, secret messages and even other participants. Performers delight and intrigue, adding to the fun as families weave amongst and around each other.

Pram People offers a playful and welcoming approach to community participation through joyful movement and connection, using the most universal of vehicles – the pram. Hilarious, serious and surprisingly moving, this immersive, colourful spectacle reclaims the pram as an asset to public space and society as a whole.

Please join Polyglot Theatre for a special dress rehearsal in Melbourne before they tour Pram People to Joondalup Festival in Western Australia. Polyglot thanks the City of Merri-bek for the use of Jones Park.

Event Access

This event will take place outdoors on grass, in daylight. Please check the weather, bring sunscreen, hats and water bottles, and wear comfortable shoes.

There will be no bright or flashing lights.

Adult participants (those who book in) will be given headphones to wear during the experience. The performance contains instructions delivered in English.

Prams are an important part of the Pram People. All sizes and types are welcome!

Pram People is wheelchair accessible however, as we will be outdoors on grass, some surfaces may be slightly uneven. Adult wheelchair users can participate with their child on their lap, and families with children in wheelchairs are welcome to participate if they feel it is appropriate. The soundscape focuses on the experience of parents/carers and babies and toddlers and prams specifically, so it may not appeal to families with children older than 4 years in wheelchairs.

Pram People celebrates the people who use prams. Participants can step out of the 60-minute experience at any time to take a break, feed their children or change a nappy.

Water, infants’ bottles and breastfeeding/chestfeeding are welcome, however we do ask that there is no eating (where possible) in the performance space.

You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks for picnicking before or after Pram People.
