“Spectacular, magnificent and breathtaking are a few of the words that describe contemporary circus show The Goblin Market,” according to stuff.co.nz.

The Goblin Market is a recent production from New Zealand circus performance troupe The Dust Palace. The show is inspired by Christina Rossetti’s poem about two sisters, one of whom is tempted by the goblin merchants who sell fruit by the stream from which they draw their water. Needless to say, no good comes when the sister exchanges a lock of her hair for a piece of fruit.

In The Dust Palace palace version, three performers (Eve Gordon, Rochelle Mangan, and Edward Clendon) interpret the story’s dark, sensuous elements with acrobatic feats, nudity and sexual scenes. The adults-only circus production is sure to spice up this fall’s Vancouver  arts lineup.
