Award-winning circus artist Rockie Stone (Fright or Flight – Best Circus, Adelaide Fringe; Best Circus, Perth FringeWorld; Best Visual Theatre (nom), Edinburgh Fringe) once again brings to the stage her unique style of contemporary circus. This time, teaming up with acrobatic artist and circus blogger Vincent van Berkel and kinetic sculptor and culture hack Callan Morgan to weave together a humorous, delicate yet gritty exploration of the most pressing concern of our time for the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2015.
Circus, kinetic sculpture and music combine to explore forward momentum in the face of a climatically changing, environmentally de-stabilising world. With an obstinate and creativity-fueled optimism, Perhaps There Is Hope Yet… dares you to believe that we can overrule inertia and ‘save the planet’, one exquisite design idea at a time.
Drawing inspiration from chaos theory, biomimcry and daily socio-political commentary on the state of the world, these three highly accomplished artists add their collective voice to the politico-scientific debate on the global climate challenge.
Perhaps There is Hope Yet... has been programmed in The Fringe Hub, North Melbourne Town Hall, running for entire season of the festival, 9pm each night. The project has received in kind support from Melbourne Fringe Festival, Artshouse, and Circus Oz.
