FoRT - Presented by the Knox Community Arts Centre

Asking for Trouble presents FoRT a circus/physical theatre production, which delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.

Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. In a series of vignettes 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.

Dates: Thursday 3 October

Times: 11:00am

Tickets: Adult $15, Child $12, Family (4 people) $45

For ages 4 and over

Venue: Knox Community Arts Centre
