Delve into the deliciously fluid world of circus. The Night Circus is a moving performance across three iconic Footscray sites.
Watch aerial performers, encounter a power house troupe of aged, idiosyncratic circus women and watch a factory site come to life with a choir evoking ghosts of the past.
This special performance includes an adults pop-up circus workshop, so once you’ve watched the show, you can try it for yourself.
This is not a review. However, it may do some things that a review might do. If you read this in the near future (in the near future of my posting that is) it may persuade you to see the show. But, that’s not really my intent. I’m actually writing this to help me reflect on my own experiences of the production and develop my own project ideas and ideas about ‘immersive’ theatre. So, utterly biased, subjective and agenda-filled musings within.
Also, THERE MAY BE SPOILERS! But probably not as I’m really talking about the ‘structure’ of the experience rather than anything too specific about what actually happens.
