The final Girls with Altitude

The Melbourne season of this wonderful show was a triumph. Four school shows and three general public shows at the Arts Centre at the end of September. The general public shows all sold out a week before opening. And another wonderful review, this time from Australian Stage.

Horacek’s cartoons and drawings loom large and, through scrims and projections, integrate seamlessly with the circus skills. While a playfulness punctuates the visuals (they are cartoons, after all), there’s also a wry sarcasm and wit that well-matches the physicality on display.   

An underwater scene has an aerialist in flippers and goggles slowly swimming mid-air amidst Horacek’s drawings of fish and the ocean. This is just one of many settings – outer space, flying through the sky – that creates magical visual scenarios.”
