Flying Fruit Fly Circus
“To invent, all you need is a pile of junk and a good imagination” –
The highly acclaimed Flying Fruit Fly Circus return with their latest smash-hit show set amongst a 1940’s rural junkyard. Transforming trash into magical landscapes, JUNK takes you on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe.
Exploring the question “in this day and age, do we overprotect our kids?” JUNK tells the story of a modern-day boy finding himself in an abandoned junkyard inhabited by the spirits of children from the 1940s. They teach him to play, trust, invent and take risks.
Inspired by childhood stories recorded with elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of JUNK will take your breath away with jaw-dropping acrobatics, magical shadow puppetry and world-class circus skills for the whole family.
★★★★ “A vibrant and imaginative acrobatic showcase…JUNK is absolutely wondrous. Grab a child, go.” Elissa Blake, Sydney Morning Herald
