Saturday, March 23
This Saturday night, March 23, sees the world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus take centre stage at TRECC.
Their production, Junk, takes you on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make believe.
An ordinary boy, dressed head-to-toe in contemporary safety gear, discovers an abandoned junkyard inhabited by a gang of wild-at-heart kids. With boundless enthusiasm, the group 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, acrobatics and beautiful shadow puppetry, creating a sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks.
Inspired by childhood stories told to them by elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of the world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus will inspire you with their breath-taking artistry.
