We Live Here 2022 season

21 September, 2022

We Live Here, two-time Matilda award-winner (best director, and best circus/physical theatre), announces dates in Perth 27-30 SEPT 2022, and Brisbane 25-29 OCT 2022.

Based on the stories of the parents, siblings, and guests of Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only youth hospice. We Live Here explores themes of resilience, chaos, and the beauty of a moment shared. Told through impressive and breathtaking circus feats.

“[Hummingbird House] is a place filled with moments. It’s a place where moments become memories. It’s where families live.” – Dr Fiona Hawthorne, General Manager, Palliative Care Services at Wesley Missions Queensland.

Developed by young circus artists in collaboration with senior professional artists. Flipside values young people as cultural creators and believes that children and young people should have access to the highest quality artistic experiences as participants, makers and as audiences.

“We Live Here was a collaborative process with young artists from Flipside Circus’ performance troupe and professional artists working together to find ways to translate some of these stories and moments onto the stage.” – Robert Kronk – Artistic Director/CEO, Flipside Circus

 “Awe-inspiring and captivating performance which gave me all the feels.” –  Audience review

Performed by young circus performers and professional artists, We Live Here is perfect for audiences 6+.

“We Live Here is more than a physical theatre performance and much more than just a show. It is inspiring but also grounding; a beautiful piece of thought-provoking art.” – Jo Michelmore
