We’re getting ready for A Smorgasbord of Circus, which is a show we put on to showcase the amazing talents of the wonderful students and coaches at The Circus Spot. If you haven’t attended one of these before, you are in for a treat. It’s both a really fun event, and a great chance to bring our circus community together.
But this time round there are so many different acts we couldn’t fit them into one night. So, we aren’t just putting on one show, we’re putting on TWO!
EVEN BETTER… for the first time we are going to be performing in a theatre. A REAL THEATRE! Previously we’ve converted the training space into a makeshift performance venue, but things have gotten so busy I thought it was time to take the plunge and hire a proper theatre.
If you would like to come along, make sure you book your tickets.
I’m looking forward to sharing a very exciting show with you.
Where? Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre – Corner of Bell Street and St Georges Road, Preston
When? May 14th: 7pm & May 15th: 2pm
How much? Adults – $32 Kids – $20
Daniel is the Chief Executive Clown (i.e. founder and director) of The Circus Spot, with a vision that every child in Australia should be able to show off at least one circus trick! He’s slowly getting there too, having taught over 5,000 kids and adults circus skills over the last 10 years. He is a typical circus geek, always dreaming up new ways to teach a cartwheel, or plotting the next performance for our performing troupes. Prior to starting The Circus Spot, Daniel has worked in and around circus as a performer, teacher and rigger (the guy that hangs all the trapezes). His signature circus trick was balancing on one leg on a slackrope (like a tightrope, but very loose), and then proceeding to use his spare foot to kick cups and cutlery high in the air to land in a bowl balanced on his head! This cool trick may have taken 4 years to perfect, but gave Daniel a chance to perform with a variety of companies such as Circus Quirkus, ThowDown, Circus Oz, the traditional family circus Circus Royale, Dislocate Physical Theatre and even supporting the rock band The Dresden Dolls.
