Our 2017 Barely Contained Cabaret was a celebration of new works of circus by artists from Vulcana.  Many of the works explored internal thoughts and  processes that erupted in an exuberant expression of circus and physicality. Some works embodied this barely contained energy, some subtly examined this internal process, some revelled in the contortions of circus itself, and some resorted to the ridiculous to express their conundrum.

Cheeky, serious, spectacular, ridiculous, thoughtful and beautiful, Quiver was performed by a mix of queer and queer friendly artists, Quiver revelled in the disruptive notions of sexuality, gender and live performance. Mixing the energy of circus and dance, with the beauty of music and spoken word, this was a diverse and inspiring performance that challenged identities to evoke change.

The Vulcana Ensemble's inaugural and original performance piece, Inertia was presented as part of Brisbane Powerhouse's Wonderland Festival in December 2016, with an almost sell out season.
