An acrobatic adventure exploring all the things we could be...

People are made of stuff – good stuff and bad stuff, happy and sad stuff, stinky, odd, boring, dangerous, funny, sparkling potions of stuff. People also have secret ingredients – what could your secret ingredient be?

I Wish… is an exciting collaboration between two internationally renowned Australian performance companies – Patch Theatre (makers of ZOOOM) and the circus acrobatic company Gravity & Other Myths. Through physical theatre, stunning visuals, and a healthy dose of humour, students will be thrilled by gravity-defying acrobatics, and coloured lights and lasers.

The performers use their imaginations to explore all the things they could be – from an astronaut to a unicorn, and everything in between. While exploring all their big feelings on stage, the acrobats encourage students to see the power of exploring our differences to reveal the magic of individuality.
