Review by Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane of ‘Disappearing Acts’, presented by Vulcana Circus

Disappearing Acts sees Vulcana deliver circus into green spaces throughout Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast region for Anywhere Festival. There are two shows in disappearing acts: I saw consignment 2 with performers Mayu Muto and Phoebe Manning on the lawn of the Moorooka Bowls Club. Vulcana does great work connecting with communities, and this setting felt very local: shouts from the soccer field next door could be heard up until the show, and kids ran around the field as parents grabbed drinks from the club bar inside. Truly possible anywhere, the show began as a van was driven onto the field, out of which came the two performers, setting up their set as the start of the show.
