Sydney Festival highlights. Melbourne-based dance theatre group KAGE delivered one of the most original and enjoyable experiences at the Sydney Festival. In Forklift on Saturday, three female dancers drive and dance upon a real 2.5 tonne forklift. In an hour-long performance combining contemporary dance choreography, contortion and aerial acrobatics, the dancers demonstrated extraordinary technical skill, theatrical talent — and a sense of humour.

If you’ve ever wanted to see a woman do a one-armed handstand on a piece of (moving) heavy machinery, this could be the show for you. KAGE is taking the show to Melbourne and the UK.
