I Wish...

An acrobatic adventure exploring all the things we could be

I Wish… is an exciting collaboration between two internationally renowned South Australian companies – leaders in children’s performance Patch Theatre and boundary-pushing circus company Gravity & Other Myths.

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?

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.

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

Gravity & Other Myths is an Australian circus company pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus. Their work utilises an honest approach to performance to create shows with a focus on human connection and acrobatic virtuosity.
