Na Djinang Circus

See a stunning acrobatic performance linking people, country and culture, where the unseen bonds between the body and the land become beautifully visible.

This enchanting Na Djinang Circus performance explores the ancient connections tying First Nations people together, strong through bloodlines but damaged through colonisation.

Four performers—led by award-winning circus entertainer Harley Mann (Wakka Wakka)—connect with each other physically and spiritually in a display of breathtaking acrobatics and visual techniques.

Arterial will both excite and move you as the performers celebrate what it means to be First People—the lifeblood of this country. The land is its beating heart.

A circus like no other.
