Set in rural Australia around the 1940’s, JUNK tells the story of a neighbourhood of children that live behind a junkyard. Through their imagination we see household trash transform into magical landscapes for jaw dropping circus stunts to take place.
JUNK is reminiscent of a time when children created their own fun, when they played outside from dusk to dawn, climbing trees, jumping off roofs, hanging off the hills hoist and discovering that their imagination could take them anywhere they wanted to go. This work takes audiences on a journey back in time, before children had access to televisions, computers and expensive toys, when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe.
Performed by artists from Australia's celebrated national youth circus aged 10-18, this is "family circus at its very best" (SMH).
JUNK goes on tour in 2018 to: Auckland Arts Festival, 9 - 11 March Albury Entertainment Centre, 24 March Bendigo Ulumbarra Theatre, 29 March Canberra Theatre Centre, 5 - 7 April Griffith Regional Theatre, 11 April Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre, 13 - 14 April The Wedge PAC, Sale, 18 April Dubbo Regional Theatre, 21 April
