“To invent, all you need is a pile of junk and a good imagination.” – Thomas Edison
Riverside Theatres presents A Flying Fruit Fly Circus Production - Junk. The internationally acclaimed Flying Fruit Fly Circus tumbles on to Riverside’s stage with its multi-award-winning show these April School Holidays to celebrate its 40th Birthday.
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 urge 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 and weren’t wrapped in cotton wool.
Inspired by childhood stories told to them by elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of Junk will move and inspire you with their breathtaking artistry.
Come with your whole family and be inspired to unleash your inner acrobat!
