The Gallery of Oddities: A homage to the Circus Sideshow

R oll up, Roll up Ladies and Gentlemen! For the one and only, the marvelous, the magnificent Gallery of Oddities. Fuse Circus has created something very special, a mobile interactive gallery that investigates the myths, lies and outrageous rumours of the old-world fakeries of the circus freak show.

A re-invention of the traditional circus sideshow, The Gallery of Oddities is hosted by your fabulous guide, the Dr Marvella.

The wonderful curiosities within the Gallery of Oddities promise to cure all ills, enhance your looks, and enlarge your mind.
Feast your eyes on a collection of crazy and creepy sights and sounds.
Prepare yourself to be shocked and amazed by stories of weird artifacts that defy the realm of normalcy and sculptural oddities that will tease the imagination.

The Gallery of Oddities is a living homage to the historic circus freak show, a theatrical interactive carnival ride.

As a special treat for the Wellington Festival of Circus, the Gallery of Oddities hosts an additional stupendously fantastic, fabulously eery, superlatively seductive late night veiwing, that is suitable for grownups only!
If you are one of the chosen few lucky enough to partake of this mockery of morsels, you will find it is the perfect amous bouche to the Circus of Horrors, or a delightful finish to the family fun of The Navigators. (And so well timed, too.)

The wonder of the gallery is that the fantastically freakish objects within may also be purchased - for a price, but beware the Dr Marvella may ask for your soul!!!
