FREE TIX - Ascent

FREE TIX - AscentWould you improve yourself to death?

Creating optical illusions with movement and light, along with a unique combination of original vocal and musical elements, Ascent is an innovative new music theatre production that takes audiences on the journey of one woman ever reaching for the ideal.

Undergoing a series of physical transformations in a quest to feel forever fresh and relevant, Ascent is another premiere Australian season by local outfit Citizen Theatre that examines what it is to be a woman, and the lengths some people will go to to achieve "perfection".

Running for THREE SHOWS ONLY at Theatre Works this Melbourne Fringe Festival, Citizen Theatre proudly brings Melbourne audiences a pertinent new work.

Citizen Theatre is an independent Melbourne-based theatre company that has been producing and creating new work and existing plays since 2013. The company is drawn to presenting social causes and issues on stage and works with a feminist, access conscious approach in mind. Many of their shows explore the combinations that music and theatre can offer, re-imagining how musical forms of theatre are perceived in Australia. Previous seasons include Alexithymia, Inferno: A Double Bill, Nude, The Importance of Being Earnest and Twelfth Night.

This season of Ascent is generously supported by Monica and Sam Abrahams and the Ron and Margaret Dobell Foundation, as part of ShowSupport.

"... a beautifully polished piece of theatre..." - Stage Whispers (Alexithymia)
"The writing by Kirchert is excellent, intelligent, engaging, fluid, almost academically philosophical prose" - Theatre People (Nude)

Most read reviews

Kurios | Cirque du Soleil

Given what an immense and perpetual global franchise Cirque du Soleil has become, it must be quite a challenge to keep coming up with new themes while still attempting to conform to a vague unifying style that maintains the brand.

Anthem | Melbourne International Arts Festival

There’s a great deal happening in Anthem, a cross section of humanity meets and the differing opinions and cultures make for great people watching.

Diaspora | Chamber Made and Robin Fox

Diaspora offers the audience a vision of a distant imagined future and wow, what a vision it is!

Aurora | Circus Oz

As climate change awareness reaches an all-time fever pitch, with the likes of Greta Thunberg calling on humanity to save the planet, while business booms for the Australian coal mining industry, Circus Oz’s Aurora could not be more perfectly timed.

High Performance Packing Tape | Branch Nebula

The banal is made dangerous in this one man DIY circus.
