Event Details

“Children’s theatre doesn\’t get any better than this. This inspired array of Italian and Aboriginal artists is the perfect fusion of dance, art and breathtaking digital design.” Sunday Mail, Adelaide

SALTBUSH is an exquisite interactive journey through the culture and landscape of Aboriginal Australia, celebrated through live dance, music, song and stories. Children are invited to explore and play with the performers as a landscape unfolds around them upon an incredible carpet of sensors activated by movement.
