Kage Physical Theatre

Kage Physical TheatreFrom Australia

Three pieces of highly quirky and unusual physical theatre conceived and directed by Melbourne's Kage Physical Theatre.

Howzat! It's the Australian cricket team versus the rest of the world in this supersized parody of Australia's favourite game. With batsmen on stilts slashing wildly at tumbling human cricket balls, you'll be completely stumped.

Date: 17, 21, 22, 24, 26 March
Location: Alexandra Gardens

The Pavlovas
A delicately stunning confection of elongated elegance and spectacular grace on stilts. Never saccharine, perfect for dessert.

Date: 18, 23, 25 March
Location: Alexandra Gardens

The Travelling Aussie Troupe
Join this amazing troupe of eccentric characters from Australia's historical past as they roll into the Games on their incredible wooden Side-by-Side Bike. Spouting Australian colloquialisms all along the way, the Southern Cross Brothers with Rosella and her Kangaroo will take you on a bonza journey through imaginary Australian folklore.

Date: 16 March
Location: City Square, CBD

Date: 19 March
Location: Alexandra Gardens
