She Would Walk The Sky

Occurs every week on Sunday, Friday & Saturday

An acclaimed Australian playwright and a world-class contemporary circus ensemble combine to create this acrobatic odyssey.

Combining the beautiful prose of multi-award-winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer (The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy) and the talents of critically-acclaimed circus performer and director Chelsea McGuffin (Cantina, Circa), She Would Walk the Sky is a special commission inspired by the theatricality and scale of Brisbane Powerhouse.

A story told above, in and around the audience, She Would Walk The Sky sees new fables and old myths unfold in the vaulted halls of Brisbane Powerhouse. Leave behind the world you know and enter a land where old fires, lost dreams and new hopes linger amidst the broken skies of an old empire.

Chelsea McGuffin’s career has seen her write, direct and perform in circus and cabaret around the world, notably as co-creator of the successful Cantina (Brisbane Festival, Strut n Fret) which has continued to tour extensively around the world. She Would Walk the Sky is a stunning new work – a world premiere – woven from a unique collaboration that draws the vision and sublime skill of Chelsea and the Company 2 ensemble together with the timeless prose of one of Australia’s most gifted playwrights.

Finegan has had 58 commissioned plays performed on five continents, and was an inaugural recipient of the Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship. In 2013, 20 of his works (including eight premieres) have been presented in Australia, China, England, Germany, Indonesia, and the United States. Finegan has won a Helpmann Award, a Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award, Australian Writers Guild award, Oscart Awards, the Jill Blewett Playwright’s Award and the Colin Thiele Scholarship, among others.
