LOCAL primary school students recently
enjoyed a show at the Chaffey Theatre based
on the 1980s video game, Tetris.
Riverland Special School teacher Trigona
Pickering said the performance was interac-
tive with the students.
“The performers had a Rubik’s Cube and
they asked the students to twist it and they
moved a certain way,” she said.
“Each movement on the cube meant a
movement for the performer.
“The students would turn the cube and the
performers would have a leg up, so the stu-
dents were in control of them.”
Following their appearance on stage, the
performers turned the tables and sat in the
audience while several students were on
“The best part of it (the performance) was

“All of the schools really liked the perfor-
Tetris was part of the DreamBIG Children’s
Festival for primary school students (aged
five to 12) and toured by Country Arts SA.
Tables turned at Tetris performance
A stage show inspired by the 1980s video game, Tetris,
