In this participatory performance, families connect across cultures through the simple beauty of lullabies. Children dance, sing, and play in a magical, twilight-inspired installation space.

The stars are no longer twinkling in the sky and we need your help to sing to them back to shine more brightly than ever.

Aboriginal and Palestinian artists share lullabies from their languages and cultures while inviting children to dance, sing, and play in a magical installation space.

The experience invites families to connect across cultures through the simple beauty of lullabies. Take time to play with your toddler and share a small and beautiful moment in a special space.

Performed in Arabic, First Nations Australian languages, and English.
