Look Mum, No Hands!

27 August | 1.50 & 4.55pm | Monument Gardens West

Duration: 30min

What to Expect: Great for Kids | Speech free


Using a combination of theatre, movement and acrobatics, two friends play and push the boundaries of what is possible, until together they find the perfect balance of each of their limits. 

This tender and unexpected story about friendship and growing up explores ideas of independence vs interdependence, vulnerability and strength, using striking and unforgettable physical imagery.
