A huge white ball is being pushed, heaved, thrown, and rolled around in a game – or is it a ritual? As the ball moves, it sings, it speaks, it screams. It’s a clever ball: its motion manipulates sound. As the ball spins, it juggles with words – words of wisdom, words of power, words of warning.

Come to watch and listen or join in pushing, pulling, throwing or heaving the Big Ball across four outings at the Perth Cultural Centre as part of the Tura New Music Festival.
