This is circus that goes straight for the jugular and leaves no viewer unmoved.

This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

BLUE BONES

Co-Creator Zahara Newman.

SINGLE HOTA Members $40.80 Adult $48 Group (6+) $42 ea Seniors/Pensioners $42 Student $26 Student Group (6+) $21 ea HOTA Artist Pass $36

An outback misadventure strands John Grant in a harsh and remote Aussie outpost, Bundanyabba. So, he makes new ‘mates’: they’re quick with a drink, but with every scull a dark violence lurches forward. Kenneth Cook’s iconic work of Australian Gothic horror is felt in the flesh. Bring sunscreen, buy a beer, and wear your ear plugs. Once we pierce the Yabba’s ocker veneer, you better be ready for the explosive brutality pent up inside.

★★★★ Brilliant, bold and deeply unnerving theatre. The Age

Ages 15+ Contains adult material, coarse language, gunshots, smoke and haze effects, alcoholism, animal cruelty, blood/gore, death, strobe lighting and extremely loud noise (earplugs provided).

Based on the true story of two teenagers’ romance as it blossoms then warps in the heat of bustling Singapore, Blue Bones is a one-woman show told with incredible honesty by Merlynn Tong. Combining multiple characters, kung fu and arcade dance games, the performance is a multi-lingual whirlwind of love and naivety, violence and courage.

Opera Queensland returns to HOTA with Patrick Nolan’s critically acclaimed production of Tosca. Often described as the greatest opera of all, Tosca embraces the grand themes of the human spirit.
