Bunjil Place Turns One Get in on the (circus) acts October 28

For a fun-filled day of free and family friendly activities, it’s time to join in and help celebrate Bunjil Place’s first birthday. Featuring performances from One Fell Swoop Circus, The Lisities, buskers, roving entertainers and food trucks, it’s a day not to be missed.

One Fell Swoop Circus will bring their much-lauded production, By A Thread, to Bunjil Place for two performances only, bringing with them their trademark 30 metres of white rope.

Using no nets or safety harnesses, By A Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics and spectacular skills from some of Australia’s best emerging and established circus artists. Hoisted and swung by one another seven performers will combine their dynamic acrobatic skills and poignant physical theatre in a choreographed exploration of tension; physical, emotional and relational. Studio (11.00 am and 2.00 pm – both shows sold out)

“If you want to see a group of
exceptional humans pushing the limits of their art, this show is definitely for you.” The West Australian

Alien attacks, toilet paper guns, spew, the rudest word in the world and the most disgusting pair of undies ever seen – welcome to The Listies Makes You LOL! A raucous, unruly hour guaranteed to have the whole family (even dads) LOLing, ROFLing and ROFLSHALBOWCOing (Rolling On the Floor Laughing So Hard a Little Bit of Wee Came Out). Jam packed with high-brow jokes that kids love, like poo jokes and vomiting, this is an anarchic and interactive show that’s sure to disgust. Theatre (10.30 am and 1.00 pm)

Outdoors and in the sunshine, there’ll be an abundance of entertainment with roving entertainers The Monstrosities and The Seagulls, Giant Party Games and a unique greenscreen GIF station for photo booth fun. To get creative, there will be Party Decoration Workshops presented by Home-Work, and for those who prefer to sit back and be pampered the Bunjil Place Glam Station will get you glammed up and ready to party.

Buskers in the Plaza will be showcasing some great music, whilst a bundle of food trucks will have all appetites covered with Harry Hoo Dumplings, 3 Lil Monsters and a Pizza Van, along with Let’s Waffle and Shake and Little Sugar Caravan for the sweet tooth. Along with one Giant Birthday Cake (and 1,000 cupcakes to share)!
