About the Program
An acrobatic adventure exploring all the things we could be...
People are made of stuff – good stuff and bad stuff, happy and sad stuff, stinky, odd, boring, dangerous, funny, sparkling potions of stuff. People also have secret ingredients – what could your secret ingredient be?
I Wish… is an exciting collaboration between two internationally renowned Australian performance companies - Patch Theatre (makers of ZOOOM) the circus acrobatic company Gravity & Other Myths. Through physical theatre, stunning visuals, and a healthy dose of humour, students will be thrilled by gravity defying acrobatics, and coloured lights and lasers.
The performers use their imaginations to explore all the things they could be – from an astronaut to a unicorn, and everything in between. While exploring all their big feelings on stage, the acrobats encourage students see the power of exploring our differences to reveal the magic of individuality.
Presented by Sydney Opera House and Patch Theatre in collaboration with Gravity & Other Myths
