Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.

1986-1987 History

A Clown for the Circus

A screengrab from the 'Our Street' production video in 1987. A man in a blue shirt plays a guitar and sings to a dog puppet who rests on top of a barrier painted as a metal rod fence, with painted flowers underneath to resemble a park fence. Behind the fence and the dog is a painted row of wooden houses.
