Brisbane audiences will be treated to a sexy, funny and explosive combination of circus, cabaret, vaudeville and burlesque when Judith Wright Centre presents Circa’s production of Wunderkammer from Tuesday 14 to Saturday 18 June 2011.

Hailed  by critics as the hit of last year’s Brisbane Festival, Wunderkammer will play its only Australian season this year before heading  to Berlin for an eight-month season at the renowned Chamaeleon Theatre. Creator  and Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz, who at 19 years was the youngest director to be accepted into NIDA and directed the likes of Toni Collette and Cate Blanchett before he turned to the world of circus, describes Wunderkammer as an “exquisite blend of music, song, light and circus that will delight the senses”.
“Wunderkammer combines new circus, cabaret and vaudeville, with sideways glances to sideshow and burlesque,” Yaron says.
“A  diva squeezes through a tiny ring, balloons strangely disappear, muscle-bound gents stand precariously on each other while ropes are climbed, hoops spin and bodies fly, splat, tumble and balance.
“This  show is both entertaining and emotive, where moments of great beauty and outrageous humour jostle for attention.”

Wunderkammer is performed with the full weight of Circa’s seven-strong ensemble: Nathan Boyle, Jessica Connell, Todd Kilby, Rudi Mineur, Alice  Muntz and Brittannie Portelli. Judith Wright Centre presents Circa’s production of Wunderkammer from Tuesday 14 to Saturday 18 June 2011. Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
“… fantastic entertainment: shocking at times, thrilling, sexy, beautiful, moving and captivating throughout.” on Wunderkammer
“Under  the direction of Yaron Lifschitz, Circa  has established itself as a leader in the genre of contemporary circus, and now enjoys a growing reputation on the international circuit – in constant demand from festivals and theatres around the globe.”
