Experience the fruits of the Goblin men...


Eat fruit - Love lust

After receiving critical acclaim in Canada, The Dust Palace is delighted to mount a tour of The Goblin Market in Aotearoa!

Spring-boarding from Christina Rossetti’s iconic poem ‘Goblin Market’, the show is a contemporary circus retelling following two sisters, their temptation, sacrifice and eventual salvation. Delicious circus is precariously balanced with gritty performances and candid storytelling.

“This outstanding display of circus, acting, and narrative performance wowed us! Goblin Market works on all levels - colour, impact, acrobatics, drama, plot, and the stunning skills of its cast. The best New Zealand production of any art form we have seen in years. We are going again”. Penelope Ryder-Lewis, Audience member, Nelson Arts Festival

“… the most remarkable production I have seen in the last decade. Thrilling, moving, inspiring, mesmerizing (and sometimes even humourous) – it reminded me of why I work in the performing arts in the first place”. Howard Mendelsohn, Centaur Theatre Company, Montreal
