What lives in YOUR trash? 

‘Hatched’ is the latest show from Curious Legends, featuring 2 adorable Ibis Chicks – Nellie and Sid – making their way in the world. Hatching from a wheelie bin, these baby bin chickens will light up the night with their antics, clowning, and glowing illumination. 

Modelled after the humble bin chicken – much maligned by Australian culture – the Ibis is reimagined in this playful performance by Curious Legends. Perhaps we have more in common with bin chickens than we realise…
