The Dust Palace Productions

The Dust Palace is New Zealand’s pre-eminent cirque-theatre company combining the exhilaration of circus with the narrative richness of theatre. “The Dust Palace has brewed up a volatile concoction with circus acrobatics, contemporary dance and physical theatre shaken into a potent cocktail that is breathtakingly spectacular, sensuously lyrical and often funny.” (NZ Herald).

Founded in 2009, the company makes theatre that is striking, beautiful, fun and provocative. The immediacy of circus is harnessed as a gateway to foisting deep, raw human experience on the unsuspecting audience! The Dust Palace has been critically acclaimed for its impressive acrobatics, choreography, energy and authenticity.

Over the past seven years, The Dust Palace has produced and toured ten circus shows, slowly morphing from circus burlesque through circus cabaret to our one true love, circus theatre.
