Following our South Island gig, we'll be hopping on a plane to showcase our work as the only NZ company represented at the CINARS Biennale. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to make new contacts, build relationships with potential collaborators and international festivals and be inspired by groundbreaking new work. 

Montreal is the circus capital of the world. It's home to world-renowned companies like Cirque de Soleil, École Nationale de Cirque and Les 7 Doigts de la Main. It's long been a Dust Palace dream to touch down in Canada and so we're planning a full immersion with our team which we reckon is gonna be life-changing. 



Eat fruit. Love lust.

Inspired by the Christina Rosetti poem, The Goblin Market is a contemporary circus re-telling following two sisters, their temptation, sacrifice and eventual salvation. Delicious circus is precariously balanced with gritty performances and candid story telling - the production celebrates the female gaze in its exploration of sexuality and sisterhood. It incorporates double trapeze, mask, projection, acrobatics, spoken word and music.

The Goblin Market premiered at the Nelson Arts Festival on 22 & 23 October 2016 to rapturous reviews!

Next stop: CINARS, Montreal

Amazing thanks to all of our supporters who helped our bossted campaign!
