Junk, Clown

Non-verbal Show|50 min|6 August, 5:30pm

Junk Clown is a non-verbal comedy theatre production aimed at children over 4 years. Four clowns gather and have fun, and frolic on stage by engaging in games and pranks with each other. What is even more creative is how they use discarded waste such as drums, bicycle handles, broken bowls, and pots to represent vehicles and animals. There are many positive messages to children and adults alike, such as recycling old material, the positives of being full of life & energy and the power of laughter in challenging times.

Into Thin Air

Contemporary Dance|83 min|24 August, 5:30pm

Into Thin Air is a visual theatre piece inspired by real life. It deals with the disappearance of value and cause and the loss of the present in the rush for a better future. The piece's dramatic aspects are filled with dark humour and have been derived from the true stories of the participants. As the piece unfolds, the dancers stretch their physical boundaries which are like the characters stretching their realistic boundaries to fit comic-like prototypes. Choreographed by Idit Herman.

The show received an award at the Tolosa International Puppetry Festival in Titirijai, Spain.
