The Lighthouse

Patch Theatre and Adelaide Festival join forces again to premiere a brand new show, The Lighthouse.

Patch Artistic Director Geoff Cobham continues the celebration of big ideas – ideas that explore some of the world’s inexplicable questions from a child’s point of view. Taking light out of traditional theatre spaces and moving it into more explorative terrain, The Lighthouse puts children and their families at the centre of an exploration of light.

The Lighthouse beckons young people and their adults to explore its nooks and crannies. This unique interactive promenade performance is part installation, part scientific quest, part rave. A series of interconnected rooms await, each full of hands-on experiences exploring a different property of that elusive yet fundamental force of nature: light.
