All the fun of the circus is coming to Port Arthur for one day only as part of Ten Days on the Island festival in March 2013.
In a dazzling display of physical agility, Australian performance troupe Circa will literally perform 21 circus acts in 20 minutes.
“It all moves at break-neck speed, no two routines are the same, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to feel like you’re out of shape afterwards. Brilliant.” NBC New York
Their head-shaking, furious acrobatics is spell binding, leaving its audience questioning the limits of physical flexibility. But set against a ticking clock this is magic and entertainment revved to the limits.
Its young team who fly, twist, tumble and contort themselves into a knot of limbs is regarded as one of the country’s greatest exports, having entertained 180,000 people in 13 countries in 2011 alone.
Almost embracing pantomime, the three young acrobats race against the clock before leaping to an awaiting vehicle that whisks them to the next stop. This show is as much a challenge to their audience as to those on stage.
Access to the performance is included in the cost of Site entry. Make it a picnic to remember with our gourmet barbecue – the Port Arthur catering team will be there with the famous gourmet barbecue, so make a day of it and bring the family.
