Imagination takes flight

From Queensland’s Arc Circus Co., the creators of the wonderfully buzzy A Bee Story (Sydney Festival 2021), comes a visually amazing piece of site-specific acrobatics and physical theatre – living sculptures created right in front of your eyes. Made in collaboration between Arc Circus Co., Luther Cora and his team from Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers, and inspired by a Dreamtime story, How the Birds got their Colours fuses traditional First Nations dance, storytelling and contemporary circus into an experience that will touch your heart and open your eyes. 

Hosted in the open air, against the moving canvas of the sky and sea, this free performance is perfect for everyone aged two and up. Let your imagination take flight. 

This performance takes place at various locations around Sydney.
