Full program is available:


In an all singing all dancing extravaganza, dynamic dramaturgical early childhood thespians, Dr Red Ruby Scarlet and Louise Dorrat, present a splendiferous spectacular salubrious engagement with the National Quality Framework.

Grounded in poststructuralist theory, this piece of professional development is based on the following questions:

What counts as valid knowledge?

Who decides?

And 'in whose interest are they enacted?'

Get ready for an intellectual, ironic, engaging, toe tapping, hand clapping, finger snapping interactive performance festooned with favourite tunes including the smash hits ‘QIP’ (composed in collaboration with ABBA), ’The Assessor’ (composed in collaboration with The Family von Trapp) and ‘E.Y.L.F.’ (composed with The Village People).

You’ll be dancing away convinced that dramatic arts are valid knowledge and they are a useful way to engage with, build understandings, and make sense of, The National Quality Framework.

Written and performed by: Dr Red Ruby Scarlet and Louise Dorrat.

Suitable for: educators from early childhood and out of school hours services
