These Things by SWAY - Ballarat Begonia Festival

Access info

Mark your calendars and be prepared to be enchanted at the heart of Ballarat’s own 2024 Begonia Festival, where joy, elegance, and botanical wonders collide in the unmissable premier performance of “These Things,” by Melbourne’s own SWAY.

Immerse yourself in this sensory experience, where the convergence of music, dance and circus transports you to a world where the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur. Picture tall sway poles adorned with begonias gracefully dancing and spinning, bending to impossible angles, whimsically accompanied by the timeless works of Johann Strauss (albeit somewhat reworked .. ) “Spinning Things” is not just a performance; it’s a journey into the magic of motion, music, and botanical beauty.

Please join in for this celebratory and mesmerising fusion of art and nature that’s guaranteed to captivate audiences of all ages.
