Where are we going today?
We all know that iconic sound of the didgeridoo, and when we hear it we can imagine it echoing across the Australian Outback. The Sounds of Starlight Theatre takes the traditions, landscapes and stories of the Australia desert and creatures fascinating musical and visual journeys based on these histories and tales.
It will take kids right from the desert to beyond the stars! The haunting sound of the didgeridoo will pulse rhythms that the kids will be fascinated by.
The Sounds of Starlight Theatre transforms into an energetic and exciting venue from April to November, for "The Didgeridoo Show Outback", where musician interpret various stories and traditions with soundscapes, percussion and of course didgeridoos. They want to make sure families experience fun and memorable times at the theatre.
Ready to explore the Australian Desert! With Sounds of Starlight Theatre, you will travel through the vibrant red landscapes of the desert, through the howling wilderness, across the outback mining towns all the way to quiet camps. Hear the stories of Caterpillar Dreaming as you get taken on a journey with the drums beating out an eternal rhythm.
It's great for kids because they will be introduced to new sounds and vibrations, however kids under 5 might find the times too late and they might get tired. If they can stay awake though, it's a great treat!

What people are saying?

Je n'ai pas eu la chance d'assister au spectacle, par contre j'ai eu le plaisir d'y recevoir mon premier cours de didgeridoo.
La personne qui nous a accueillit a fait preuve de patience et de tolérances face à nos tentatives mélomanes.
Elle nous a expliqué l'histoire de l'instrument et essayé tant bien que mal de nous aider à sortir du son.
Une jolie expérience, je vous la recommande.
