PRECIPICE

This September, Australia’s next generation of circus talents will be on show when the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) presents PRECIPICE.

Leaping into a world of chaos, PRECIPICE defies danger in an effort to celebrate life – through exhilarating tumbles, turns, shifts and falls. Interrogating the impermanence of time, physical and psychological senses.

The elite NICA circus artists have spent the last two years honing their circus and performance skills, guided by world-class trainers including Aaron Walker, vertical aerial specialist and trainer for the past twenty years; Vasily Ivanov who toured the world with the Moscow Circus for over a decade, and; Earl Shatford, a master juggler who is currently chasing the Guinness World Record for the most rings juggled while bouncing a ball on a head pedestal. Onstage the performers will present spectacular solo and duo acts including roue Cyr, group acrobatics, handstands, adagio, unicycle, juggling, aerial rope, diablo, head trapeze and multicorde.
