Albany Entertainment Centre 
4.00pm & 7.30pm

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 a collective of extraordinary artists committed to spreading the joy of creativity in communities. The huge cast will feature internationally acclaimed performers, community performers, Mt Barker College Choir, Let’s Shine and young talent supported by Breaksea’s Youth Mentorship Program.

Caretaker of Lost Selves will be performed as part of a double bill with View from the Magpie's Nest.
