Spaghetti Circus set for world premiere at Brunswick Picture House

Spaghetti Circus has partnered with Brunswick Picture House to co-produce a breathtaking new show Monumental. Directed by Spenser Inwood from award-winning company A Good Catch Circus, Monumental will feature the extraordinarily talented Spaghetti Circus Performance Troupe. 

Monumental is an ensemble-based work that explores the missing moments in history, the under-recognised achievements of scientists, social advocates, and artists. Audiences will be spellbound, moved and inspired as these creative young performers build spectacular monuments to the unsung trailblazers in our shared history. A celebration of Spaghetti’s community and unique process this new work allows the troupe to build trust and curiosity while flying in the air, holding each other up and diving through hoops.

“Making circus for us is about working together as an ensemble, driven by conversation and collective endeavour, we share skills and stories, and the circus emerges from that process”, said Debra Batton from A Good Catch Circus. 

This will be Spaghetti’s first new work in four years, and it is set to impress. “The opportunity to co-produce and present the work with our good friends at Brunswick Picture House has allowed Spaghetti to feature exciting additions to this show such as a live band, bigger stage, new costumes and outstanding production elements”, said Spaghetti Circus General Manager Alice Cadwell

Local musicians Sue Simpson and Melia Naughton will be creating an original score to be presented live using keyboard, violin, voice and percussion. With new costumes designed by Chloe Rowland this show will see Spaghetti’s crazy talented kids take their much-loved shows to a whole new level.

You can expect things you’ve never seen before as Spaghetti Circus and Brunswick Picture House work in partnership to produce Monumental.

Do not miss this show, it will sell out.
