Barangaroo Reserve - Creative Planet, 9.30am, 12.30pm, 3.30pm, $22

Dreaming of ways to keep active kids entertained these school holidays? Bring them to Barangaroo for Creative Planet – a brand new workshop program for ages 6 to 16 years* that teaches techniques of parkour, gymnastics and acrobatics.

For six days only, leading physical theatre company Legs On The Wall will transform the Cutaway at Barangaroo Reserve into a pop-up jungle gym. Participants will leap, jump and vault in a safe and supportive environment guided by some of Australia’s best acrobats, breakdancers and parkour artists.

The two-hour workshop also explores creative skills with Legs On The Wall’s Artistic Director Joshua Thomson. Using crash mats, ropes and more, participants work together to build a world from their imaginations – turning objects into a dynamic obstacle course.

No acrobatic skill is required – Creative Planet is an inclusive workshop where all skill levels are welcome. With each workshop limited to small numbers, booking early is recommended to avoid disappointment.

*Participants will be placed into age and skill appropriate groups.


Each workshop is 2 hours long. Sessions start promptly as advertised. Please arrive 15 mins early for registration and waiver signing. There will be a 10-15 mins performance followed by a facilitated workshop where participants will be placed into four groups of six. Each group of six will have its own facilitator who will take them through creative exercises and movement based activities. If you are late, you may miss the warm-up. Latecomers will be required to complete a warm-up before being admitted to the workshop at a suitable time.


Parental supervision during the session is welcomed but is not compulsory. There will be a viewing area for parents to watch from. Alternatively parents can feel free to enjoy Barangaroo Reserve, enjoy cafes in the southern dining precinct or book into an Aboriginal cultural tour with one of our qualified guides.


Parents or guardians will be required to sign a release form on the day. View a copy in advance.
