THE GOBLIN MARKET
Eat fruit. Love lust.
The Dust Palace presents the world premiere of their new circus theatre work. Spring-boarding from Christina Rossetti’s iconic poem 'Goblin Market', the show is a contemporary circus retelling following two sisters, their temptation, sacrifice and eventual salvation. Delicious circus is precariously balanced with gritty performances and candid storytelling.
“…A full house, standing ovation and the most common word on everyone’s lips: Spectacular!”
Janet Whittington, Theatreview, 25 October 2016.
“Combining various disciplines without giving the impression that it is a succession of distinct numbers (as is often seen in the circus), New Zealand production is a lesson on how to tell a story without depending on the usual codes of the written or spoken prose, nor of the numerous artifices that tend to exhibit the spectacles of greater extent.”
“... the most remarkable production I have seen in the last decade. Thrilling, moving, inspiring, mesmerizing (and sometimes even humourous) – it reminded me of why I work in the performing arts in the first place"
