FoRT - Performance Season 2019
Rollicking fun with spectacular acrobatics, clowning and poetic visuals, celebrating imagination and adventure.
Have you ever built a… FoRT? …
The wonderful crew at Asking for Trouble delve into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.
Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. A couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents - places to explore. Images appear and disappear. FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.
Suitable forages 4+
“Conjures up the spirit of kids’ adventure… spectacular acrobatic work… enchanting”
