About this event

The atomic bomb that dropped on Hiroshima changed everything, especially for 12-year-old Sadako Sasaki. In a concord of live theatre, contemporary dance, music and aerial silks her true story, captured in a play by Kathryn Schultz Miller, lives on. Situated in the stunning Japanese Gardens we pay homage to the girl who sparked a movement of peace.

"Without exception they all give terrific performances, bringing to life this deeply moving tale about death and hope. It is without doubt, for me, the strongest and most consistent and uniformly most powerful ensemble of community actors that I have recently seen in Adelaide." Tony Knight, Stage Whispers
