ADELAIDE FESTIVAL 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. DON’T MISS ZIZANIE 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.” 14 – 17 March Space Theatre – Adelaide Festival Centre Tickets available from LITTLE PEOPLE BLAAS 2 -10 March Thomas Edmonds Opera Studio – Adelaide Showgrounds FOEHN 13 -17 March Main Theatre – AC Arts BABA YAGA 26 Feb – 6 Mar Queen’s Theatre – Gillies Arcade SYMPHONY FOR OUR WORLD – ELDER PARK OPENING WEEKEND CONCERT 2 March Elder Park BIG PEOPLE CARMEN  8 -10 March Festival Theatre – Adelaide Festival Centre COUNTING AND CRACKING 2 – 9 March Ridley Centre – Adelaide Showgrounds MAHLER CHAMBER ORCHESTRA 8 -10 March Auditorium – Adelaide Town Hall MEGAN WASHINGTON 15 March The Palais – Elder Park OUT OF CHAOS… 27Feb – 6 Mar Scott Theatre – The University of Adelaide WIN WIN A FAMILY PASS TO FOEHN!

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.
