Goblin Market (New Zealand)


28 Feb 2019 - 31 Dec 2022

Short Synopsis

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.

Reviews Feature

“... 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
