From the creators of award winning shows Bubblewrap & Boxes and KAPOW!
Asking for Trouble presents FoRT, a circus/physical theatre production, which delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.
Inspired by an unplugged version of childhood FoRT is a show which celebrates the cubbies, dens and forts children create to grow stories and their imaginations.
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. Battles are fought, passwords exchanged, there are kings atop of castles and strange undersea creatures.
FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes and cardboard boxes into racing cars.
"Asking for Trouble always manage to gently tap into childhood emotions... This is done ever so lightly but gives the performance an extra layer that is so often missing in children's theatre"
Caitlin Crowley, Chortle - For previous show KAPOW!
"Can't tell you how excited we are to have FoRT touring next year - every kid in Victoria should see this brilliant show."
