Do we celebrate our 'deathday' in the afterlife as we do our birthday in the land of the living? Party Ghost is a ghoulish exploration of the postmortem mystery through a comedic pop-cultural lens. Part circus and part séance, this show is made from the limbs of drag queens, the blood of acrobats and the tears of misunderstood clowns.
Featuring macabre circus darlings Jarred Dewey (Circa, Circus Oz) and Olivia Porter (Circus Oz, La Soirée), the show centres around a twisted narrative of perpetual birthday purgatory and ghostly identity crises. As sidesplittingly hilarious and downright weird as it is physically astonishing, this show sees two of Australia’s most sought-after company acrobats behind the wheel of their own show for the first time. Stylistically different from anything else out there, fans of high-level circus and dark comedy will find Party Ghost refreshing, jaw-dropping and hauntingly hilarious.
'If Edward Scissorhands were a circus show, it would be Party Ghost. Playful, provocative, camp and macabre – an outstanding production from a boldly original new company.' ArtsHub
'A cacophony of dismembered limbs, ghosts that range from the ludicrous to the downright disturbing, this show is next level messed up and twice as amusing. It’s great to see performers having a play with form and character, especially when they are as talented as these two.' FringeFeed
'Party Ghost is so far left that you’ll be thoroughly gob-smacked at how ooky, kooky and spooky it is. Deliciously macabre, this is a circus show that places whimsy and surrealism firmly at the forefront… while covering it in a white sheet, playing Happy Birthday and then murdering it for comedic effect.'
