What's On > JUNK


Please note: show duration is approximately 55 minutes (no interval).


The world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus celebrates its 40th birthday with its award-winning show, JUNK. JUNK takes you on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe. An ordinary boy, dressed head-to-toe in contemporary safety gear, discovers an abandoned junkyard inhabited by a gang of wild-at-heart kids. With boundless enthusiasm the group urge him to play as children once did: without inhibition and free from adult supervision.

 Propelled by a cast of talented young performers, this vibrant take on childhood tumbles headfirst into a world of play and imagination through circus skills, acrobatics and beautiful shadow puppetry creating a sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks and weren’t wrapped in cotton wool.

 Inspired by childhood stories told to them by elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of JUNK will move and inspire you with their breath-taking artistry.

 Come with your whole family and be  inspired to unleash your inner acrobat!

 Australia’s Flying Fruit Fly Circus is one of the world’s premier youth performing arts companies. In 1979 it began as a local circus project for school kids. Since then ‘the Fruities’ have tumbled their way into the hearts of millions of people throughout Australia and the world.
