Arts Centre Melbourne And Briefs Factory Present BRAT KIDS CARNIVAL
Fresh from a two-month run on London's West End, the high-energy mix of Brief Factory's circus and cabaret will come to life at Arts Centre Melbourne's Playhouse on Saturday 23 March in their family-friendly show Brat Kids Carnival.
This show has been created specifically to get youngsters excited about expressing themselves. It features hula hoops at top speed, acrobatics at alarming heights, clowning antics, pumping music, eye-popping party tricks and other ridiculous acts of amazement.
From awe-inspiring to the downright hilarious, Brat Kids Carnival is perfect for kids aged seven and up as they watch top notch circus superstars defy gravity, and even have the chance to get on stage and have a boogie.
The wildly fun afternoon is not just for mum and dad but they can come too! Put on your party outfit and join the Brat Kids Carnival brought to you by the team behind international sensation, Briefs.
This troupe is led by the beautiful, sassy and fabulous emcee, Shivannah, AKA Artistic Director Fez Fa'anana. The cast of characters includes: one of Australia's leading circus showmen Mark 'Captain Kidd' Winmill (2011's Las Vegas King of Burlesque); circus performer and juggler Louis Biggs; Luke Hubbard, new member of the team and a fantastic dancer and super bendy acrobat; Dylan Rodriguez, a first dan black belt in Taekwondo but also dance-trapeze, hand balancing and acrobat extraordinaire; and Luigi Zucchini, international man of magic comedy with goofy Italian antics.
