Culture 2022 - 600x400_w_stripe_FoRT.jpg

Asking For Trouble and Critical Stages Touring presents FoRT 

Created and Performed by Christy Flaws and Luke O’Connor.

“A fun and playful physical theatre show that inspires creative play” - Arts Review.

A magical physical circus adventure for young people and their families. From the multi-award winning circus and physical theatre makers Asking For Trouble comes this exciting new show just for young people and their families. 

Dive into a magical world of play and creation, where everyday objects become a universe of fun and adventure. Two strange heroes are hunting for whispers of possibility when they discover a pile of seemingly ordinary objects like sheets, broomsticks and cushions.  

In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents... places to imagine and explore. Images appear and disappear. 

FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics and poetic visual imagery that celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes and cardboard boxes into racing cars.  

If you’ve ever made a fort from a sofa, or helped your little one create their own, this is an inspiring and delightful new theatrical experience the whole family will enjoy. 

Approximately 55 mins (No interval) 
Recommended for ages 3 to 10+ 

This event is part of Chatswood Culture Bites 2022, Willoughby City Council’s innovative program of music, theatre, comedy and more in Chatswood CBD.
