A musical romp more sophisticated than an average mod-rom-com, Romeo Is Not The Only Fruit takes the star-crossed lovers audiences know and love, and makes them even better as star-crossed lesbians.

BREAD CRUMBS is a warped retelling of the well-known fable Hansel and Gretel – it’s a crass and highly stylised exploration into the link between gender roles, domestic abuse and the scarring impact it has on young people.

A streetscape, reminiscent of Finders Street in Melbourne, home to many who are lost; lost to society, to their families and often, to themselves. Five poetic monologues from Award-winning Australian playwright, Daniel Keene that invite audiences to consider the multi-faceted issue of homelessness through the eyes of those who have found themselves, simply, yet despairingly, lost.

Last week one of the performers from Tandem, Poppy Seed's fifth and final show, fell during rehearsal, injuring their wrist. Circus by nature is a highly physical and risky art form and while Gravity Dolls takes the necessary precautions to maintain high safety standards, accidents do happen. The performer is thankfully expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks, however due to the nature of the injury is unable to perform in the scheduled season and the best course of action is to postpone the performance.
At this stage it will likely be in May or June next year but we will be making an announcement once we have the season firmly locked down with Chapel off Chapel. Whilst cancelling the season is disappointing, this outcome allows Gravity Dolls to regroup and present the show in all its Retro-video game glory as intended next year! Stay tuned for information regarding the new dates.
Inspired by retro video games, board games and the absurdity of Japanese game shows, Melbourne-based circus-duo Gravity Dolls creates a new interactive performance game: Tandem.
