Compagnia TPO & Insite Arts
Saltbush is an interactive journey through the culture and landscape of Aboriginal Australia, celebrated through live dance, music, song and stories. A collaboration between Italian, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australian artists, Saltbush follows the journey of two Aboriginal friends as they cross Australia on foot. 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 can become part of this visually beautiful journey.
Children’s theatre doesn’t get much better than this … the perfect fusion of dance, art and breath-taking digital design
