VISITING SYDNEY FESTIVAL - INSIDE THERE FALLS






When we left Inside There Falls, a installation as part of the Sydney Festival, I asked my six-year-old son what he thought. "Awesome," he said. 

We weren't sure what to expect. The posters said it was a labyrinth of music, voice and dance.

First of all we entered a "blue room" where we had to put on white overalls and listen to a voice coming from inside a paper ball. The kids loved this part. Then we entered the labyrinth - a series of large-scaled paper sheets hanging from the ceiling. This was also popular. There may have been a dance performance in the middle but we spent most of our time making our way through the maze. In the centre was a large installation, which both intrigued and engaged the children.

Tips
* Get there early. We visited on Sunday and the first performance was at 12 noon. Each session lasts about 10 minutes and we were told 23 people are admitted at a time. We arrived a little later and so had to wait at least 20 minutes (two sessions before us viewed the performance).
* It was suitable for a three year old but I held off taking my 18 month old. We left a stroller outside of the performance space.
* There were children-sized overalls available.
* Toilets are located in Carriageworks and there is a ramp from street level down into the building.
