Why is everyone always looking down? Playful and fearless, with a curiosity for birds and flying, Robyn reminds us all that we should dare to look up. 

One of the undoubted highlights of the nationally renowned Just So Festival, this is a circus and puppetry show with original soundtrack that will appeal to everyone!

Violet Quotation Marks

The four amazingly talented acrobats left the audience gasping, in awe of their skills. With masterful puppetry too, the show wowed every crowd over the weekend."
