Venue: Sydney Opera House: Studio
Theatre Company: Compagnia TPO & Insite Arts in co-production with Teatro Metastasio Stabile della Toscana

Duration: Approximately 50 minutes (subject to change)

Following an extensive world tour, this magical work from award-winning production company Compagnia TPO and Insite Arts returns to Sydney Opera House for a strictly limited school holiday season.

Filled with live dance, music, songs and stories, Saltbush follows two friends on their journey through the Australian landscape; from river country to an urban landscape, through desert and through sea. Children will find themselves immersed in a live, projected artwork that will introduce them to the shared culture and language of Indigenous Australia and will be enthralled by the landscape that unfolds around them.

Truly unforgettable and filled with opportunities to interact with the artists, this boutique, internationally acclaimed work is a must see event for ages 4+
