2024 Theatre Season - Families Season

You don’t know Far North Queensland if you haven’t experienced The Wet...

From the moment the green ant’s journey to higher ground begins till the final breaking of the storm, The Wet connects you to place and immerses you in the hot damp. 

Following the natural arc of the wet season, the work is divided into the 4 distinct lessons of country: Nature, Morality, Kinship and Lineage. Each lesson is a fundamental tool needed to understand the story of the wet season.

The Wet has been created on country across Far North Queensland in response to the landscape and endless yarns with the community. Drawing on these ancient stories of the wet tropics, this dynamic acrobatic show thrills while connecting everyone to country.

The Wet is a powerfully enduring circus, dripping with culture. 

Circa Cairns is a Circa initiative supported by the Queensland Government and the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation. Circa Cairns is based in Gimuy (Cairns) on the lands of the Gimuy Walubara Yidinji people.
We acknowledge that art has been practiced here over many millennia, ​

and that it remains a fundamental way of life for the traditional  caretakers and custodians of the lands on which we work, create and perform today. 

​We acknowledge that we are here as visitors, and accept the  responsibility to respect and care for these lands and tread lightly.

Always was. Always will be.
