Circus

The WonderWombs

Presented by The Dust Palace in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

This all-female circus party will uncork your expectations like a bottle of cheap champagne. Dripping with autonomy, The WonderWombs is renovating circus and winking at your surprise.

The Dust Palace brings its signature hustle of risk, splendour, story, comedy and desire to this extraordinary performance experience.

Eating binaries for breakfast and unfastening the buckles at gender’s waistline, these performers don’t need to hit the glass ceiling; they can lift it!

Part of Wonderland Festival 2018. 

Reviews

...looking around there are times when people have hands cupped over their dropped jaws, eyes wide, pupils dilated: how fantastic!

Megan Smith

Definitely the kind of show you need to see more than once.

It was so hot I felt like shouting out my phone number.

More Info

Established by Eve Gordon and Mike Edward in 2009, The Dust Palace is New Zealand's pre-eminent circus theatre company. Our aim is to create tour-able circus theatre, taking our stories around the world; and to foster circus and physical performance and practitioners in Auckland and Aotearoa New Zealand. No other professional company in NZ operates in this innovative, form-forward space. We value quality, audacity and humanity. We create work which connects communities, sharing skills and spreading delight.

The Dust Palace has progressed toward creating more integrated narrative based works as our company and audience profile has grown, which is at the core of what we do. From our early cabaret-style works we have been introducing our audiences to a more sophisticated, genre-bending blend of circus and physical theatre; challenging and engaging diverse audiences as well as providing mind-blowing entertainment!
