The Dust Palace

New-Vogue cirque-burlesque unveils Q’s studio space.

Unveiling the dynamic studio space in Auckland’s brand new ‘Q’ theatre this September is an intimate, personal, and beautiful tale of love and eroticism that follows the story of an older couple rediscovering each other.

Created by nationally renowned aerial theatre company The Dust Palace and produced in association with Stamp at THE EDGE, Venus Is…bcombines physical and aerial theatre with dance and song to recreate the intimacy and sensuality embodied in the erotic literature of authors such as James Joyce, EE Cummings, Anias Nin, and Shakespeare.

Led by Eve Gordon, North & South magazine’s pick as “Queen of Burlesque Theatre”, the cast of eight (made up of ex-Cirque du Soleil performers, contemporary dancers, aerialists, singers, and actors) will command every inch (both in the air and on the ground) of the sumptuously dressed Q studio as they bring to life some of the most admired erotic texts from the turn of the century with more than a touch of titillation.

Abundant with physicality and with an undercurrent of tongue in cheek humour, Venus Is... will take audiences on a journey of discovery and pleasure, challenging perceptions of sexual relationships and encompassing moments of tragedy and pure joy.

Performance, art, beauty, and the words of the masters of erotic literature coalesce in a new theatre experience that merges the daring opulence of burlesque with the frivolity of circus performance that promises to push the boundaries and open the new ‘Q’ studio with a bang this September.

Venus Is... intimate, opulent, uplifting, and of course...incredibly sexy.

7 – 17 September 7pm (Tuesday – Saturday) with additional performances at 9.30pm (Friday – Saturday). Preview Wednesday 7 September, opening night Thursday 8 September. Book at www.qtheatre.co.nz, 305 Queen Street or by calling 09 309 9771.
