Bleach* Festival wraps up with trampolines, salsa and kayak theatre

Bleach Festival rolls out its final weekend of artistic goodness from this Friday. It’s the third weekend for the festival which has played host to five world, one Australian and four Queensland premiere productions across 60km of coastline from Coolangatta to Helensvale.

Highly Sprung, created by acclaimed Sydney aerial theatre company Legs On The Wall comes to Kurrawa Park in Broadbeach on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 April. It combines the talents of dancers, trampolinists and parkourists who will challenge gravity in a spellbinding collision of performance and play. After each of the six performances the trampolines will become a public playground. Highly Sprung is on at 10.00am, 1.30pm and 4.30pm.

Hindsight will offer patrons the chance to kayak through Broadbeach canals while being treated to immersive dance routines and physical theatre. It’s on Friday through Sunday at 7.00pm.

Bleach* at Nightquarter will have you dancing up a storm when Peruvian sals dura champions Sabor Y Control bring their ten-piece party machine to Helensvale on Saturday from 5.30pm.

Bleach* at Burleigh sees Sabor y Control headline a blissful afternoon of live tunes right on the sand at Burleigh Beach. Slip-On Stereo and Benny D Williams open the stage from 2.30pm.

And if that’s not quite enough for you, the incredible Blanc de Blanc continues until Sunday 16 April, with tickets selling very fast. Seriously, book ahead if you want to catch this show. It’s indescribably good (although our Cultural Editor had a crack here). And Here I Am continues for the kid at Robina Town Centre until Saturday afternoon.

In its sixth year, Bleach* Festival is still managing to present art which both delights and challenges its audience. Don’t be the dude who misses out. Check the full program at
