A heart at sea 👍👍👍👍

A Heart at Sea uses haunting live music to tell the story of a young Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea. Original song-writing is set to breath-taking visuals centred around a beautifully carved wooden chest that holds the secrets to the story.

Intricate puppets are swept through a transforming wooden world created by the spectacular chest. Be astounded as backdrops flip up, pirouette and change, sending the Boy tumbling through danger and discovery. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, sea captains and beards.

The original songs, composed by Avi Simmons, knit together the atmospheric tale through live vocals, instruments and a loop station. The music sweeps through echoing soundscapes to create a visceral, heart-warming experience. Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart.

When we Ran 👍👍

When two sisters flee the commune they’ve grown up in, they discover a harsh and beautiful world they never knew. Playful, visual storytelling with original songs from the creators of We Live By the Sea – ‘Top Theatre of 2016’ (New York Times). Patch of Blue are a multi award-winning company creating fresh, exciting and touching devised theatre with live music. They are the recipient of the prestigious Grahame F. Smith Peace Foundation Award for promoting human rights through theatre, as well as the Best Theatre and Critics Choice awards at the Adelaide Festival.

Wereldband 👍👍👍👍👍


Losing it 👍

Performed by a clown duo enrolled in Cirque du Soleil, accompanied by one-man orchestra Bird Radio and comedy directed by critically acclaimed Cal McCrystal, this show is a daring fusion of laughter and tears. An odd and elderly immigrant couple is waiting for their children… A life defined by vegetables, routine and memories is illustrated through grotesque body-mask, mime, object manipulation and live music played on classical instruments and kitchen utensils.

Circa: Humans 👍👍👍👍👍

The new, thrilling and heart-stopping performance from the internationally acclaimed Circa (Closer, Beyond, Wunderkammer). Humans is an ecstatic love letter to our endangered species. Created by Yaron Lifschitz and fresh from a storming season at Sydney Festival, ten acrobats go faster, harder and higher than ever before, taking us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human and of how our bodies, our connections and our aspirations all form part of who we are.

The venerable bird’s eye view 👍👍👍👍

Artocrite Theater (Hong Kong)

Three actors are transformed into birds and trapped within a cage – the human world. In this new life they must express their emotions and needs, and explore gender to forge a new, human identity. Artocrite theatre create a multimedia experience bringing intense physical experession together with contemporary music. Directed by Dr Peter Jordan in partnership Hong Kong artists Birdy Wong and Pong Leung, The Venerable Bird’s Eye View is a stunning cross-cultural performance without spoken language.

Kim had a little dance on stage with the bearded man in the dress with a shining heart.
