Quiet by Nature


Explore with a kayak and a torch, keep your eyes and ears peeled for the unusual and ‘wild’ life of the area. A truly immersive performance experience that encapsulates the natural beauty of the urban waterways. 2018 Premier at the Commonwealth Games.

'Quiet by Nature, one of our world premieres and commissions for Bleach Festival 2018 was one of my favourite experiences this year. It was such a fantastic use of the space and the way the artists celebrated and worked with the Currumbin Estuary to bring to life the natural habitats through dance and sound composition as we paddled across the moonlit waterway was such a stunning and delightful experience. Quiet by Nature was a project that was supported in our Bleach Lab in 2017 and it was fantastic to see the work come to fruition in its full form in April 2018.'
