An idle passing fancy is transformed into a 30-minute show featuring bold imagery, original music, vivid sound and ever-surprising twists and turns.
A glimpse into what goes on inside a head; wishful thinking battles it out with mental blocks and twisted logic.
Brain Wave is an outdoor theatre show, performed twice a day, that is suitable for all ages. It features live action with mechanical, inflatable, musical and puppet interventions.
