Saltbush

“…involving, engaging theatrical magic that could and should play any theatre in the world.” Sunday Mail, Adelaide

Don’t miss this truly unique show toured by Performing Lines to The Joan in Term 3.

Saltbush is an exquisite interactive journey through the culture and landscape of Aboriginal Australia, celebrated through live dance, music, song and stories. An ensemble of Aboriginal artists collaborated with Insite Arts and the internationally acclaimed Italian company Compagnia TPO to create this highly acclaimed work.

Saltbush centres on the journey of two friends from different Aboriginal backgrounds as they cross Australia on foot. Their journey sees them travel across diverse Australian landscapes (countries) – river country, urban landscapes, the desert and the sea, all the while discovering the land and better understanding and acknowledging our own challenges and personal journey.

Children are invited to explore, play and dance with the performers as the landscape unfolds around them, providing a unique immersive experience where the audience becomes part of this visually beautiful journey.
