Vulcana Women's Circus and the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts
present Strange Creatures

Vulcana Women's Circus in collaboration with women from Vulcana's circus
workshops and women from the Deaf community in Brisbane will present a new
circus theatre work, Strange Creatures.

Strange Creatures combines the spectacle of circus with the performances
skills of Auslan* speakers to produce a compelling piece of physical theatre
for Deaf and hearing audiences.

Set in a subterranean laundry/laboratory women investigate reproductive
technologies. Infertility is redefined, disabilities are de-constructed,
mothers are made, fathers are contested and washing machines become
warehouses of human possibility as the private moment of conception is
thrown into the public arena. Who knows what strange creatures come out of
the wash?
