Tall Tales on the High Seas is the latest work from Australia’s Strange Fruit. It is a celebratory adventure for children and families of all ages.

This epic tale, performed atop 16ft sway poles, follows the Chaplin-esque antics of three eccentric mariners aboard a vessel which morphs from humble beached boat, to a ship on the high seas. This vessel’s levitated crew perform an arsenal of spectacular physical feats in an exploration of the immense capacity of the human spirit, transforming familiar public spaces and highlighting the iconic sway poles that define Australia’s Strange Fruit.
