The Dust Palace…with a stranger…

Tue 22 Jul - Wed 23 Jul

…with a stranger… follows a man who works in the lost property department of the world. In a sudden epiphany of purpose he understands he is to re-distribute the things he collects. But once gifted these things create as many problems as they solve and our characters must decide if they’ll let life throw them around or stand with bravery and make decisions of their own.

…with a stranger… is a play on serendipity and the connections between people.

“…with a stranger… is a mesmerizing and jaw-dropping visual spectacle and an absolute theatrical masterpiece. Circus does not get any sexier and more dangerous than this.”

With a strong influences from the style of revered Montreal circus troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main (The Seven Fingers of The Hand), The Dust Palace have created what they tout as “arthouse-circus”; a cabaret of short stories told in the striking language of carny.

“As always The Dust Palace show is original, varied, naughty and highly entertaining.” SHARU DELILKAN – Theatre Scenes

An original devised work …with a stranger… toys with the inherent duality of people, the juxtaposition of strangeness and intimacy, and the irrevocable consequences of our actions. Armed with these provocations the troupe delves into the deep waters of humanity going far and beyond what bubbles on the surface.
