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.
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.
