Circus Allsorts

Circus AllsortsFrom Australia and the World

World Premiere

The circus at the cultural crossroads of the world ...

Welcome to Circus Allsorts, an impossibly eclectic bag of assorted delights from around the globe, all under the one Big Top. This delectable confection of circus and music treats from Australia and the world stars:

Ringmaster Joel Salom, comic aerial stunt-juggler, and gadget man par excellence;

Judith Lanigan as The Dying Swan who, inspired by Anna Pavlova, performs a classical ballet with 25 hula-hoops and a bunch of flowers;

Justin Case, trick bicyclist extraordinaire, who heroically attempts feats on a bicycle that are the stuff of nightmares;

Felicia O’Brien, high-swinging heroine of the high-trapeze performing death-defying drops with difficulty ratings to make a high-diver blush;

Jaipur Kawa Brass Band, the wild, turban-bedecked brass band from the Pink City of Rajasthan;

African ShowBoyz, five drum-pounding, foot-stomping, fire-throwing, glass-eating brothers from Ghana;

Afro Jambo Acrobats, six amazingly rubberised limbo-dancing, fire-eating, hoop-jumping, pyramid-forming acrobats from the streets of Nairobi.

Suitable for all ages.

General admission. Please note that seating in the Big Top is limited, so come early!
