“These Things” by Sway at Ballarat Begonia Festival

Access info

Mark your calendars and be prepared to be enchanted at the heart of Ballarat’s own 2024 Begonia Festival, where joy, elegance, and botanical wonders collide in the unmissable premier performance of “These Things,” by Melbourne’s own Sway!

Immerse yourself in this sensory experience, where the convergence of music, dance and circus transports you to a world where the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur. Picture tall sway poles adorned with begonias gracefully dancing and spinning, bending to impossible angles, whimsically accompanied by the timeless works of Johann Strauss (albeit somewhat reworked). “These Things” is not just a performance; it’s a journey into the magic of motion, music, and botanical beauty.

Please join in for this celebratory and mesmerising fusion of art and nature that’s guaranteed to captivate audiences of all ages.

See Sway’s performances Saturday and Sunday 11am, 1pm and 3pm, and Monday 1pm and 3pm.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
