FOR THE FIRST TIME IN VANCOUVER NEW ZEALAND’S PREMIER CIRCUS TROUPE!
The Goblin Market is a contemporary circus re-telling of Christina Rossetti’s poem, 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, through double trapeze, mask, projection, acrobatics, spoken word and music. This is circus with a Southern hemisphere flair, integrating multidisciplinary art for a stunning poetic theatre presentation of cirque artistry and skill. Eat fruit. Love lust.
“SPECTACULAR, MAGNIFICENT AND BREATHTAKING are a few of the words that describe contemporary circus show The Goblin Market” – Sara Meij, Nelson Mail
“… 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” – Howard Mendelsohn, Centaur Theatre Company
“…A full house, standing ovation and the most common word on everyone’s lips: SPECTACULAR!” – Janet Whittington, Theatreview
“Superbly choreographed acrobatics featuring the finely muscled bodies and disciplined athleticism of highly trained performers.” – New Zealand Herald
