FoRT

28 September 2021

An Asking For Trouble & Critical Stages Production

A magical physical circus adventure for young people and their families.

Important Announcement

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, this event which was scheduled for Tuesday, 29 September has been postponed. A new date has been announced for CPAC on Tuesday, 28 September 2021 at 10am & 12.30pm. Our Box Office team will be contacting all ticket holders as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this.

From the multi-award winning circus and physical theatre makers Asking For Trouble comes this exciting new show just for young people and their families.

Our two heroes arrive in a strange world, hunting for whispers of adventure and possibility when they discover a pile of seemingly ordinary objects. In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines,cliffs and tents… places to imagine and explore. Images appear and disappear.

FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics and poetic visual imagery that 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.If you’ve ever made a fort from a sofa, or helped your little create their own, this is an inspiring and delightful new theatrical experience the whole family will enjoy.

Reviews

“FoRT is a great introduction to physical theatre for younger audiences and a reminder to the older members of the pleasure of making dens under tables, obstacle courses in the sitting room and generally repurposing everyday objects to create different worlds.” - Stage Whispers

“a fun and playful physical theatre show that inspires creative play” - Arts Review

“Personally I liked the acrobatics the most! I find it amazing when you guys made imaginary items with the objects around you! Overall I thought your act was amazing!”—Zafirah, Audience member. Art Is... Festival, Horsham 2016

“We were all mesmerised by your acrobatic skills and thrilled to follow the entertaining mini story lines woven into the performance. We will enjoy a great discussion this week revisiting FoRT.” Grade 5 and 6 at Dimboola. — Art Is... Festival, Horsham 2016
