The Lighthouse

Patch Theatre lead us out of the darkness in an innovative production led by artistic director Roger Cobham. It's part installation and part hands-on science, with multiple sessions running throughout the day.

Queen's Theatre Playhouse [Adelaide Festival], 25 Feb–7 Mar, times vary 


It's all about survival as three Neanderthals brave the elements, escape predators and learn to work together. A paleolithic tale told through circus and slapstick comedy.

Attenborough and his Animals

From oceans to deserts, Clownfish Theatre act out scenes from the natural world. And where would our own sense of the natural world be without the documentaries of legendary broadcaster David Attenborough? Jess Clough-MacRae and Jonathan Tilley pay a loving tribute to the many different series' most memorable moments with great physicality.
