I Wish...

An acrobatic adventure exploring all of the things we could be

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?

I Wish… is an exciting collaboration between Patch Theatre and renowned South Australian circus company Gravity & Other Myths. Through physical theatre, stunning visuals and a healthy dose of humour, explore our differences to reveal the magic of individuality.

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.
