Badu by Erth

Journey into the wild wonders of our ocean in an immersive and magical experience with puppets, visual effects and multimedia

The magic of Erth's visual and physical theatre returns to the museum this summer with their brand new show, Badu.

Journey into the wild wonders of our ocean with an immersive experience that features beautiful puppetry, visual effects and multimedia. 

'Badu' is an Indigenous word meaning 'water', with the show reflecting on the wonder and preciousness of aquatic life in Sydney Harbour. Audience members will meet a lively cast of aquatic creatures including humpback whales, grey nurse and bull sharks, stingrays, musical mulletfish, leafy sea dragons and bioluminescent jellyfish. 

Performed in the round and developed in collaboration with First Nation artists, Badu is a companion piece to Duba (meaning 'ground') – showing at the Carriageworks in Redfern.

Recommended for families with kids aged 4–12 years. 

Important information: The museum is a COVID-safe environment. The performance will be socially distanced with spaced seating in family pods with additional cleaning between sessions. Hand sanitiser will also be available.
