“Where’s the Water!?” Money Fish are a zany acrobatic trio of fish-like synchronized swimmers - on land! Seriously silly in matching gold swimsuits, green swim caps & flippers, the Money Fish have prepared their world class acrobatic synchro routine for this special audience presentation. A highly interactive act, the Money Fish are very playful and often over-the-top silly. Audiences can’t help but join in the fun!

CIRCLE SHOWS

hasa: The aerial space show

An aerial circle show homage to outer space! HASA: The Aerial Space Show brings together high skilled aerial acts, like the kind you would see in a Cirque-style performance, into one intergalactic show. As the spaceship prepares to take off the aerial explorers of Hercinia Arts Collective embark on a mission to boldly go where no circus show has gone before. A variety of aerial acts including aerial hoop, straps and silks represent a sublime picture of the cosmos - dangerous and exciting. The show is then topped off with our incredible partner aerial act, as we take audiences beyond their imaginations into new realms never seen before.

the stupendous silver sisters

Opportunity strikes when these grey-haired ladies happen upon an abandoned busking pitch. "The show must go on!" so they take to the stage and sky for the most hilarious and unexpected display of aerial expertise and acrobatic stunts imaginable!

A comedic aerial circle show featuring acrobatics, slapstick humour and high skilled aerial acts, this troupe knows how to win over the hearts of their fans with their quirky interactions and stupendous skills. Reminiscing about their hay day in the spotlight as former circus performers, these grannies perform acts that nobody else their age can do, sometimes even surprising themselves in the process.

the flying machine

A street/festival aerial show dedicated to finding whimsy and imagination in every audience member, young and old. Created as an ode to steampunk, The Flying Machine ingeniously proposes that aerial apparatus are indeed types of “flying machines”. Using aerial rope (corde lisse), lyra, stilt dance and dance trapeze, the quirky Professor Leedle Deedle Beedle takes her audience on a tour of her latest and most spectacular “flying” inventions.
