Today we went and saw “Squaring the Wheel” at Ipswich Art Gallery.
We didn’t really know what to expect when we booked the tickets. The performance was promoted as circus, magic, contraptions and puppetry. However we took the chance and were very glad we did.
For $5 a ticket, we really couldn’t go wrong.
The performance was absolutely brilliant.
The performer and creator Jens Altheimer held our attention easily for the 60 minute duration.
We were awed and inspired. We also laughed heartily and were constantly impressed.
At the end of the performance we were also invited to watch Jens set off his thingamabob contraption that ultimately (well…after a few hitches) turned on a tape recorder.
I bet there were a lot of children who went home inspired to make their own ‘thingamabob’ contraption. I know my own little men love this kind of thing and it explains all of the recyclables hoarded away in my garage.
If you are keen to check out “Squaring the Wheel” for yourself, you’ll have to get in quickly. The performances are almost completely booked in Ipswich.
If you’ve been on the fence about attending, get off right now and book your tickets.
We highly recommend it!
