The Wet

  • $55

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

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

Circa Cairns is a new First Nations-led circus ensemble creating exciting circus shows from the heart of Cairns. The Wet has been created on country across Far North Queensland in response to the landscape and endless yarns with community.

Drawing on these ancient stories of the wet tropics, this dynamic acrobatic show thrills while connecting everyone to country.

Conceived by Harley Mann (Wakka Wakka) and embodied by the Circa Cairns ensemble, The Wet is powerfully enduring circus, dripping with culture.

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.mAlways was. Always will be.
