Circus Trick Tease Show
Show Details: 1 hour, 3 performers
Skills: Duo adagio, triple adagio, acrobatics, swing dance, hand balancing, character work, comedy
This highly entertaining 1940's inspired acrobat show is not just circus. It´s a tale of comedy, drama, love and broken hearts. The show consists of one radically strong man, one international handstand expert and a small yet feisty girl. Together, they play out their chaotic roles in dazzling displays of acrobatics, precarious balances, gratuitous headstands and a human skipping rope! Be amazed as the trio balance effortlessly on each other’s hands, head and feet.
Watch as this tight-knit unit comes undone and backstage antics erupt into recrimination & mayhem. The only thing that holds them together is an understanding that the show must go on. This incredible show if full of comedy, laughs and high caliber circus skills… a show to impress any audience.
“This may not be Cirque du Soleil but it does come pretty close. A trio of unique performers take centre stage and boast an hour of bizarre body entanglements, death defying acts and unexpected dance to a great, sensual soundtrack.
Winner of the 2008 Melbourne Fringe Festival ACAPTA award.
