In celebration of the Year of the Rat, World Square presents ‘The Ratrobats’.
Meet our troupe of eight larger-than-life ‘Rats’ showing off their acrobatic skills
in an installation inspired by the ancient tradition of Chinese acrobats and
Eight Rat sculptures (each 2.5m high) will be on display at World Square during Lunar
New Year, from Monday 13 January – Sunday 16 February. The
friendly Rats are made from hard-coated sculpted polystyrene and are dressed in
brightly coloured costumes, each in a different pose. 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. Another giant Rat
balances on a large chair, and will interact with visitors, perfect for that

World Square will also host the renowned Jin Wu Koon which will bring on the good

Friday 24 January, and traditional Lion Dance on Poles on Saturday 25 January.
The installation is amusing, engaging and interactive, and follows the success of
the ‘Three (not so) Little Pigs’ installation for LNY 2019 at World Square.
