Saltbush is a plant that can be found throughout Australia in almost all Aboriginal lands, and so it represents a common thread between all the different nations of Australian indigenous peoples. This shared idea acted as a point of inspiration for the narrative, contemporary painting, dance and instrumental music that were created by the Aboriginal artists in this production. These artistic forms were used as a means of interpreting the natural features of the landscape in an indigenous mythological context.

Through its sensor and infrared cameras, allows the children to interact, play and perform in the production and provides an immersive experience of the artwork. This also provides a unique experience for parents and teachers as they watch the children become involved.

The narrative centres on the journey of two friends and their spiritual guide on foot as they cross Australian landscapes – river country, an urban landscape, desert and the sea. The journey is one of discovering the land, growing an understanding and acknowledging how it challenges or provokes personal journeys.

One day, a suitcase suddenly appears at Larry’s door. A suitcase with a tiny label. A tiny label with Larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission…

Join Larry in The Secret Life of Suitcases as his world gets turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase taking him further than he ever thought possible.



Interactive art installation
16 – 18 FEBRUARY, 21 – 24 FEBRUARY

the megaphone project is an interactive sound field, an installation that allows people to discover a game of sound and physical play: a world of private and public broadcast. A collection of striking red megaphones of different shapes and sizes compel a joyful manipulations of voices that are naturally reinforced through simple acoustics then mysteriously and ambiguously returned via a custom spatial audio network. The megaphones create an interactive performance field where the audience creates a lively environment of play with sound that is all their own invention.


Outdoor Movie Screening

For one night only GROUNDED will transform into an outdoor cinema for a free screening of award winning South Australian film Girl Asleep, presented by Windmill Theatre.

The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can’t bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she’s flung into a parallel place; a world that’s weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous – only there can she find herself.

Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre Company, Girl Asleep is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

GROUNDED is open from 10am so head on in, find a viewing spot and check out the delicious food and drink on offer.
