FoRT

Children's / Physical Theatre
VIC
Scaled childrens fort
FoRT delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.

Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure.

In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents... places to explore. Images appear and disappear.

FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.
