World Premiere of BEETLE at NORTH AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL of ARTS (NAFA)
Legs are delighted to announce the new show we're working on with beloved children’s author and illustrator Freya Blackwood. A new Australian classic, Beetletells the story of a child who finds a friend in her backyard; together they embark on an adventure to search for the now elusive Christmas Beetle. Commissioned by the North Australian Festival of Arts (NAFA, Townsville) and The Art House - Wyong, Beetle will premiere this June at NAFA before flying to new adventures:
GET INTO THE BEETLE SPIRIT AT EDGE GREENWAY
To celebrate and connect with young people in our community we're hosting some craft activities as part of EDGE Greenway - supported by Inner West Council. The objects made will end up in the show, and kids of all sizes who join us will also get to something to take home.
