Over the past five years Fuse Circus has built a wide public following and has toured many festivals and events, won awards and received fantastic critical acclaim, this show will be the next evolution in Fuse Circus!
“The overwhelming impression they leave is of a group cleverly lacing dazzling accomplishment in the air with something more akin to true theatre, for they claim more than our fascinated gaze. In playing so wholeheartedly from their imagination they invite a response in kind.” TR Christchurch 2009.
An iconic and integral part of the New Zealand summer are motor camps, holiday parks and other outdoors camping grounds. Set in various locations around the country they are a vibrant meeting ground of people from diverse backgrounds, thrown together under the summer sun in tents, caravans in the bush or on the beach.
This is the imaginative world which Fuse artists explore and find inspiration in for the creative process. We will be working with renowned New Zealand theatre director & deviser: Nick Blake, Dance Choreographer: Maria Dabrowska, as well as international, (now NZ resident) contemporary clown Fraser Hooper to bring to you “Camping Chaos”.
