Oddtoe Babbling with Baobabs

Did you know trees can be silly? Discover how silly by meeting a baobab tree with a wacky personality.

Babbling with Baobabs is an interactive and immersive kids comedy. Using a translation machine, kids talk to a quirky tree who hilariously ‘talks’ back to them through images, animation, sound and text.

Through humour, children will also learn about baobabs, fascinating trees found in parts of Australia, and giggle at the make-believe nonsense of what this particular baobab thinks and feels.

Serving as both chief scientist and the host of Babbling with Baobabs, Oddtoe leads the children though the absurdity.

Oddtoe is the nom de plume of Otto Ottinger, a past editor and game designer at National Geographic Kids. Combining technology like projection art and 3D design with humorous stories, Oddtoe finds the funny bone for lots of children.

Babbling with Baobabs is making its debut at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Held at Signal, Melbourne’s creative studio for young people and families, Babbling with Baobabs runs for two days only.

Please note, the following performances will be filmed: Mon 1 Apr & Tue 2 Apr.
