1 – 17 March
For more than 58 years, Adelaide Festival has been delighting audiences with the very best in artistic excellence from international and local performers, musicians, artists and writers. The 2019 Adelaide Festival will be no exception, with a range of free and ticketed experiences to tickle the fancy of every family member – from theatrical triumphs, jaw-dropping physical theatre, spine-tingling music, to whimsical one-man shows; Adelaide Festival is the perfect way for families to get out and about in Mad March.
With evocative imagery and enchanting illusion, Australian dance icon Meryl Tankard works with Adelaide’s Restless Dance Theatre to create a whimsical world where a mesmerising tale for all the family unfolds. This exciting new work celebrates the beauty in difference and reminds us of Grayson Perry’s inimitable words that “weeds are just owers in the wrong garden.”

WIN A FAMILY PASS TO FOEHN!
Armed only with a pun (“foehn” is a warm Mediterranean breeze), some sticky tape, fans and a pile of shopping bags – a single puppeteer/ magician will breathe life into the inanimate.
Your jaws and those of your young charges will go slack as the little plastic dancers it, swirl and waltz on the rising currents of air. No strings. No tricks. Just a brilliantly conceived and planned improvisation that to believe… well, you must see!
Tickets are available via
