Join us for an acrobatic adventure exploring all the things we could be.

Leaders in children’s performance Patch Theatre and boundary-pushing circus company Gravity & Other Myths return to Darwin for an exciting collaboration designed especially for four to eight-year-olds and their families.

I Wish… invites you to enter a world of colour and creativity as performers imagine all the things they could be – from an astronaut to a unicorn, and everything in between. While exploring their feelings and differences on stage, they reveal the magic of individuality.

People are made of stuff – good stuff and bad stuff, happy and sad stuff, stinky, odd, boring, dangerous, funny, sparkling potions of stuff. People also have secret ingredients – what could your secret ingredient be?

Featuring gravity-defying acrobatics, stunning visuals, and playful humour, I Wish… is an unforgettable live performance experience.

  • A visually stunning spectacle of lights, circus feats and self-exploration.

    Play & Go
  • A delicious blend of Patch s unrivalled rapport with young children and Gravity & Other Myths astounding acrobatic skill.
