Splash Test Dummies
Rub-a- dub-dub, The Dummies are back with some splish splashing circus set to drown you in tears of laughter.
From the makers of hit show Trash Test Dummies comes a new production of oceanic proportions! Splash Test Dummies are here, ready to roll out their beach towels and spring into a brand new hour of circus-filled hilarity for the whole family. See a brilliant array of catch-your-breath stunt work, acrobatics, juggling and the side-splitting, slapstick comedy for which the Dummies are famous.
Victorian State Ballet will bring this timeless and much loved fairy tale classic to the stage.
The story is retold through excellent staging, simple and direct mime, superb classical ballet technique and choreography which honour the spirit of this great classical work - promising to be an inspiring, entertaining and memorable experience for the whole family!
FoRT delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects. Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents… places to explore. Images appear and disappear. FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, and poetic visual imagery which celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.
