About Welcome Home:
Escape into a Mexican oasis in the heart of Newtown and be transported into extraordinary everyday in an explosion of Aerial Yoga, music, dance, lights, and circus. Celebrate themes of life and love under the stars through a performance fusing art and architecture, projection, physical theatre, comedy, surrealism and sheer randomness. The stage is the deck, the roof, the air, the sky. Look up, look up. Let’s go somewhere and fly.
With the help of her girlfriend Henry, projectionist Dan Aston, a scuba diver, balloons and other surprises Welcome Home is set in the artist’s garden to transport, delight, entertain and elevate your feet of the ground.
Step into another world, another home, another life. Welcome Home. To Life.
Find the Extraordinary in Everyday. Be Extraordinary Everyday.
Fill your life with color. Fill it with music, dance and passion. Fill it with love. Fill it with life.
