Eat fruit. Love lust.
After receiving critical acclaim in Canada, The Dust Palace is delighted to mount a tour of The Goblin Market in Aotearoa!
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.
