Join us for a relaxed performance of this amazing show which takes audiences into a world of play and imagination through circus skills and acrobatics
Relaxed Performance Friday 9 March 11.30 am
This autism-friendly performance is especially designed to welcome audience members with disability or sensory sensitivities and their families. The atmosphere is ‘relaxed’, with some lights kept on during the performance and a quiet space in the foyer area if you need to take a break. Noisy enthusiasm is embraced and moving around during the performance is okay!
Presented at the Bruce Mason Centre, this production is directed by Jodie Farrugia and performed by young circus professionals aged 10-18.
An ordinary boy, covered head-to-toe in safety gear, prepares to ride his bicycle. Then, out of nowhere, he is sucked back in time to the 1940s. There, in an abandoned junkyard, he meets a gang of kids wild at heart, whose boundless enthusiasm urges him to play as children once did: without inhibition and free from adult supervision.
Propelled by a cast of talented young performers, this vibrant take on childhood tumbles headfirst into a world of play and imagination through circus skills and acrobatics, beautiful shadow puppetry and a moving sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks and weren’t wrapped in cotton wool.
