Curses to Newton


Brett wants to be a scientist but quickly learns that can be a tricky thing to be, especially for clown with no money! Join Brett as they stumble their way through seeking funding, rediscovering science that they probably should have learned in primary school, and an existential crisis.

Throughout this experimental circus and physical theatre show, audiences will be taken on a journey through Sir Isaac Newton’s discoveries, and others, as Brett tries unsuccessfully to discover new science. Along the way there will be juggling, clowning, acrobatics, and lots of fun!

This show helps kids see that it doesn’t matter if things don’t work out quite the way you plan, what matters is that you try your best and have fun.

This work is being developed in You Are Here’s Cahoots program. It is still a work in progress, and we invite your feedback after the showing. Tickets are free, but capacity is strictly limited. Please register via the Book Now! button above. We encourage kids under 10 and their families to attend.

This performance will be AUSLAN interpreted.
