The WonderWombs

Friday 25th-Saturday 26th October 2019

From New Zealand’s leading circus company - The Dust Palace - comes a tenacious all-wombs troupe whose breath-taking performances are wrapped in an all-knowing nod and cheeky wink.

The WonderWombs is a chance to investigate and celebrate the physicality, mysteriousness and wonder of our bodies, and maybe even have a laugh at ourselves. This is physical circus at its best, with all the performers multi-skilled in theatre, acrobatics and comedy, presenting a night of risk, splendour, story and hilarity.

With its soundtrack of rap, poetry and buzzing beats, The WonderWombs promises a night of acrobatic athletes, whose risqué hustle explores and celebrates strength in its many forms.

“Dazzling talent with true, and utterly genuine meaning… The WonderWombs is a slippery and devilish performance.” THE CREATIVE ISSUE

“A sparkling, juicy, feminist manifesto that laughs and mocks and brawls and riots all the way to the finish line.” NOTHING EVER HAPPENS IN BRISBANE

Presented by Nelson Arts Festival
Proudly supported by Savage & Savage and Creative New Zealand
