Created for Splore, sold out in Taranaki and Hamilton, The Dust Palace, due to popular demand, bringing the surrealist circus cabaret Cirque Non Sequitur home to Auckland’s Q Theatre for three nights only.
Deep in the subconscious of the world is a mythical menagerie of gods, creatures, sirens and cyborgs. The Dust Palace has journeyed to the very edge of reason, the beginnings of the world and the deepest recesses of the imagination to bring you a deadly, sexy surrealist cabaret.
Amid a feast of baroque proportion emerges the sumptuous cast of dancers, aerialists, actors and acrobats who in this visual treat take circus-cabaret to the level of the divine.
Eve Gordon (The Almighty Johnsons), heads a cast of nine stunning performers including the gorgeous burlesque bombshell Leda Petit and the ever-objectified Mike Edward (Shortland Street).
The show is a surrealist feast of circus, burlesque, dance, acrobatics and comedy. Like stepping into a painting by Dali, it's beautiful and bizarre. Dark and sexy is counterbalanced with joy and revelry. Anything could happen and much does.
“Titillation soon gives way to awe” - Karen Barbour, TheatreView.
“A hugely entertaining and saucy show presented with class and no small amount of skill.” - Tracey Cooper, Waikato Times.
