World premiere by Erth Visual & Physical Inc (creators of Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™).
ARC is an extraordinary story of self-discovery and wonder told with theatrical magic and larger-than-life puppets. An intimate tale about our love of the natural world, ARC invites young people to get up close and personal with snow leopards, hammerhead sharks, microbats, elephants, and more.
This latest world-premiere by Erth presents intimate, magical encounters with rare and vulnerable species, raising important questions about our relationship with the changing natural world.
Renowned as innovators of physical and visual theatre for the past three decades, Erth return for their fifth presentation at Sydney Opera House with this bold new work, following successful seasons of Prehistoric World (2021), Dinosaur Zoo (2019), Prehistoric Aquarium (2017) and Dinosaur Zoo (2015).
ARC by Erth is a Sydney Opera House New Work Now commission, enabled by Jillian Segal AO & John Roth on behalf of Yarranabbe Foundation.
ARC is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW, and by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts and funding advisory body.
