Chores // Cairns Children's Festival
Get your kids to clean their room with acrobatic comedy show Chores!
Do you want to see the funniest family show ever? Look no further! After sold-out seasons at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Cairns Children’s Festival is bring Chores to CPAC!
Chores is the story of two typical young rascal boys playing in their messy bedroom. Suddenly, their mother’s alarming screams rattle the boys back in to acrobatic action. A generous serve of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt at cleaning their room and doing their chores.
This mess of chaos and comedy concludes with a last-minute cleaning spree. The parents are kept at bay and the rewards come flooding in!
Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, this side-splitting show is jam-packed with skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, the audience will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done.
Chores is brought to you by Julian Roberts from Hoopla Clique. With over 15 years’ experience, the exuberant talent of this clown redefines slapstick humour and showcases the true value of tenacity, teamwork, trust and cooperation through physical theatre.
