Holding the FoRT
HAVE you ever built a FoRT? This one’s a show for cubby creators and den dwellers.
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 — all places to explore.
Images appear and disappear. FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of kid genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.
Asking for Trouble — formed in 2008 by Luke O’Connor and Christy Flaws — creates beautiful, strange, hilarious and delightful theatre to excite and inspire a diverse audience.
Their work has been de- scribed as ‘adult-friendly theatre for children or childrenfriendly theatre for adults’.
Their previous shows Bubblewrap and Boxes and KAPOW! both won best family show (Melbourne Fringe).
Christy Flaws and Luke O’Connor are bringing their show to Heathcote on June 2.
