Creation Creation

Sydney Opera House

From the creators of Bluey’s Big Play, Windmill Theatre presents a playful new theatre performance exploring life’s biggest mysteries. Two fearless creators will step onto the stage and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the universe using whatever tools are at their disposal. Cardboard boxes become battleships and ping pong balls become planets in a hilarious explosion of art, sculpture and puppetry.

Some of the big questions tackled during this show, including how did the world begin? Is there other life in the universe? How are babies made? What does dying feel like? What will life on earth be like in 1,000 years? 

Based on real-life interviews with members of the community aged between 8 – 102, Creation Creation answers your most burning questions… sort of.

Full of trickery and wickedly-funny pranks, this infamous pair ultimately highlight the need to treat others with love and care and spreading positivity is far more enjoyable.
