Chrome From Australia

The unison precision, elegance and humour of the three synchronised and syncopated songsters of Chrome have delighted and bemused audiences around the globe.

Three Sharks arrive on the scene sporting blue gill-fitted wet suits, bathing caps and shark-fins growing from their heads. They swim, dive and parade through public places with their synchronised dance movements and harmonies. A wry and witty performance investigating Australia's obsession with all things sun, surf and sand. These Sharks don't bite – they delight!

Date: 20 & 21 March
Location: Alexandra Gardens

Tennis Players
These Tennis Players lament the professionalism that has crept into the modern game. They hail from a bygone era when it was more important to be the king of court fashion than to be king of the court, a time when style triumphed over substance. The Tennis Players will be holding court throughout the Games with a gold-medal winning performance.
