A place to keep the most precious of things. A place to embrace the awe and wonder of nature.

Showcasing exquisite puppetry, an enigmatic host, audience interaction and a world of rare and exotic animals, ARC is a profound experience that embraces the natural world and the creatures that cohabit this place we call Earth.

ARC presents intimate, magical encounters with rare and vulnerable species, raising important questions about our collective and individual relationship with nature and loss.

Renowned as innovators of physical and visual theatre, for the past three decades Erth’s body of work has explored the depths of the past. With ARC, they look unblinkingly to the future, as this menagerie of animals transforms the stage before your very eyes.

ARC is dedicated to Erth’s founding company member and Executive Director Sharon Kerr.

Nominated for 2022 Sydney Theatre Award for Best Production for Children.

"If you get the opportunity to experience any of Erth’s work – go! ARC is a quality offering from one of 
Australia’s most exciting companies." – Theatre Travels
