World Square Lunar New Year featuring the Ratrobats

Community Event

10 Jan 2020 to 16 Feb 2020

In celebration of the Year of the Rat, World Square presents The Ratrobats.

Meet their troupe of eight larger-than-life Rats showing off their acrobatic skills in an installation inspired by the ancient tradition of Chinese acrobats and performers.

Eight Rat sculptures (each 2.5 metres high) will be on display at World Square during Lunar New Year. While the Master Rat welcomes visitors to World Square, performing Rats are also scattered through the Square – performing a handstand, balancing pinwheels, juggling on a unicycle and even one suspended high above the Square.

Then watch the cheeky Ratrobats come to life in Augmented Reality on the interactive live screen – that’s when the fun really begins.

World Square will also host the renowned Jin Wu Koon which will bring on the good luck and prosperity then they perform the traditional Plucking of the Greens and traditional Lion Dance on Poles.

The installation is amusing, engaging and interactive, and follows the success of the Three (not so) Little Pigs installation at World Square.
