From the internationally acclaimed Dummies Corp comes a killer circus comedy - Dumtectives in Cirque Noir, performing at NICA (39-59 Green St, Prahran) 18-21 Oct 2023. Set in a bygone era divulging a noir mystery shaken up with “Charlie Chaplin-esque slapstick gold” (Time Out), a touch of burlesque, and high-flying aerial, this farcical cocktail makes for a delicious night out. Featuring truly world-class artists, Dummies Corp has honed their unique brand of circus comedy staging productions in thirteen countries and counting. From remote Australian towns to Arts Centre Melbourne and Sydney Festival, they have delighted audiences, won coveted awards and received rave reviews across the board.
