Filled with equal measures of spectacle, disaster, and beauty, this fantastic voyage follows the antics of three eccentric mariners as they explore the power of the imagination in a quest for common ground. Expect astonishment as these world-renowned acrobats perform atop incredible sway-pole masts as their vessel “The Fabulist” pitches and rolls above the crowd! This celebrated Melbourne-based company last appeared in Providence in 2014 for mesmerizing elevated performances inside color-changing spheres at FirstWorks Urban Carnevale.
