She is the one no one notices, a giant, yet invisible. She follows strangers of all kinds, collecting the lost selves they discard, simply forget or unknowingly lose. You cannot recognise her until you see your lost self cradled in her hand.

A magical multi-arts experience where true stories weave a mysterious tapestry featuring projected visual art, dance, choral singing and live music. Breaksea are pleased to partner with the University of Western Australia's Conservatorium of Music to share  the joy of creativity in communities. The cast features internationally acclaimed soprano Pia Adriana Harris,  UWA music students, community performers & young talent, supported by Breaksea’s Youth Mentorship Program
