About this event

It's a windy day -- perfect for hanging out the washing. But there's a surprise on the clothesline - a child from the clouds is caught up with the sheets! How can we make friends when we're from different worlds? This delightful show has captivated young children, including those with disabilities, their parents and families across the world.

With original music composed by Verbal Vigilante Music this performance explores how delighted a woman is when a child from the clouds is blown in. Skillful puppetry, lighthearted clowning and visual theatre with only a handful of signed words. DNA Puppetry presented the acclaimed Atishoo! at the Perth International Arts Festival in 2012. Winner of a Turnstile Award and hailed as a "superb" highlight by reviewer David Zampatti.

Ages 0-6.
