LOBSTERS

“It is a kind of rite of spring for lovers.” Theatreview

“[A] bawdy, sensual, glamorous, dirty, beautiful, and melancholic cabaret of ruminations on love, sex, and longing.” Theatreview

“An incredibly innovative and original piece of performance art”. The Dominion Post

Inspired by the works of the great surrealist painters, Lobsters is a story about love itself, and the way we must peel away our shells to find our authentic selves.

Lobsters fuses invigorating contemporary dance with the eccentric and humorous story of an anthropomorphised lobster who was once Salvador Dali's muse. She tells of her rise and fall, from celebrity artistic icon to washed-up cabaret signer, and observes with irony two young lovers (inspired by the famous painting of René Magritte) who struggle to connect their idealised image of love with reality.
