Goblin Market (New Zealand)
28 Feb 2019 - 31 Dec 2022
Eat fruit. Love lust.
Spring-boarding from Christina Rossetti’s iconic poem 'Goblin Market', the show is a contemporary circus retelling following two sisters, their temptation, sacrifice and eventual salvation. Delicious circus is precariously balanced with gritty performances and candid storytelling.
“... the most remarkable production I have seen in the last decade. Thrilling, moving, inspiring, mesmerizing (and sometimes even humourous) – it reminded me of why I work in the performing arts in the first place"
- Howard Mendelsohn, Centaur Theatre Company
“…an audacious, energetic and provocative piece, sometimes, funny, amazing or obscene.”
– Translated from Claudia Parent’s review for Atuvu.ca, Montreal, dated 16 November 2016.
“…A full house, standing ovation and the most common word on everyone’s lips: Spectacular!”
– Janet Whittington, Theatreview, 25 October 2016.
“Their obvious commitment to and expertise in cirque performance made the acrobatic segments something wondrous to behold”
— Penny Warwick, Two Cents & Two Pence
