Kinetic Theatre – Entrée

A tasty slice of black comedy, where entertainment comes with silver service. A unique roving act in which the Chef's prize dish is on the menu, but it's a little undercooked. Remove the lid, and the prize dish is still alive. The delectable head on a platter is hungry, but it is attended by a waiter reluctant to feed it. And so the head turns to enlist the help of the audience!


Koomurri Aboriginal Incursions

The ultimate Aboriginal education and entertainment experience. Learn about Aboriginal history, culture, bush survival, weapons and art and enjoy traditional didgeridoo and dance shows. Catch them on the One World Cultural Stage.


Little Wooden Caravan: Shared Table

Shared Table is an enchanting and poignant story telling experience for older children, families and adults. When you first encounter the ‘Jacques’ the caravan you'll see his toothy grin and big glowing window eyes. Once inside the caravan you are immersed in a cosy and magical world, like a talking book brought to life.


One Million Stars project

Moonee Valley Libraries will be hosting a star weaving jam for the One Million Stars Project. One Million Stars to End Violence is a love and peace filled community project by artist and weaver, Maryann Talia Pau. The aim is to bring people together around the world to weave 1 million stars for a display in Queensland Australia, 2018. These beautiful stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism.

The stars made at the festival will contribute to Moonee Valley’s goal of becoming a Weave 100 community by pledging to weave and collect 10,000 stars by 2018.
