Wednesday“Dazzling talent with true, and utterly genuine meaning… The WonderWombs is a slippery and devilish performance.”


Auran Abraham, The Creative Issue

The WonderWombs explores intoxicating muscularity over toxic masculinity, a chance to explore gender, investigate physicality and ‘have a laugh with the ladies’.

Dripping with autonomy, The WonderWombs is a circus party that is renovating circus and winking at your surprise. Eating binaries for breakfast and unfastening the buckles at gender’s waistline, these performers don’t need to hit the glass ceiling; they can lift it!

The Dust Palace brings its signature hustle of risk, splendour, story, comedy and desire to this extraordinary performance experience.
