24 & 25 January @ Freo Big Top ·
31 Jan – 3 Feb @ Big Top @ The Woodside Pleasure Garden ·
Presented by Sliders Youth Circus/CircusWA ·

A whimsical and fun look at that moment of crossroads of youth and adulthood. The twilight years of teenage-dom and the infant years of grownup-dom. That moment between leaving school and taking that first leap, applying for that first internship, discovering the new you, new love or going to uni, taking a gap year or going on the dole. The thoughts, the challenges, the excitement and the dread. Just when you think you have figured out who or what you are, then arrives your 20’s. A story of coming of agetold through the ageless craft of circus.

Directed by Natano Fa’anana & Rachel Bodenstaff
Performed by Sliders Youth Circus
