Top of the Heap can be performed as either a 45 minute family friendly show or as a performance installation of any duration and designed for any audience. Workshops are available to compliment both.


In the land of wonder and wisdom where rain glitters and pirate ships are common on land... there lives a wondrous companionship of characters. Giggles, contortion, adventures, tea parties, and awesome pirate battles ensue... all in order to sort out who exactly, definitively and indefinitely is at... the TOP OF THE HEAP.

New-circus theatre company The Dust Palace steps outside conventions to bring you a thrilling show confined entirely to the heaped stack of furniture which makes up the set. The four performers hand balance, clown and contort, telling stories with their bodies on this sailing ship of a set.

It's a ramble through the brambles in a topsy turvy world of upside down amazement.

Electronic Press Kit including a full video of the 45 min family show can be found HERE!
