NICA Circus Showcase 2015 - LAST ORDERS!


  • NICA Circus Showcase 2015 - LAST ORDERS!

    Hot on the heels of the completely sold-out season of its 2nd year student production Pescado, Last Orders! is a delicious circus degustation featuring the 2015 graduating students from the National Institute of Circus Arts. This rollicking show will run from June 11 to 20, 2015 at NICA’s state-of-the-art National Circus Centre in Prahran. Circus fans who weren't able to get a ticket to Pescado are urged to book early.

    Directed by James Brown and Helene Embling, Last Orders! plays on the behavioural code associated with being a high-class waiter, while drawing inspiration from the classic, time- honoured Parisian waiters’ race of the 1930’s.

    Set in an alluring and intimate venue equipped with a full bar and cabaret seating, NICA's third year students will showcase their immense circus talents as they inhabit the role of waiters, a profession that also requires a great deal of agility, balance, elegance and precision.

    Audiences will be served a magnificent entertainment feast with the 16 artists performing incredible acts specially selected from the menu and made to order. This is a rare opportunity to glimpse the future stars of the circus world right before they step out onto the global stage that awaits them.

    At this café, the plat-du-jour consists of: Chinese pole, tightwire, hula hoops, acrobatics, clowning, aerial straps, handstands, hand balancing, juggling, single point trapeze and tumbling.

    Speaking candidly outside his rehearsal space, talented hand-balancing performer Mark Graham states “Audiences should expect to see a very modern circus showcase, each act has a high level of artistry that I think is very special”.

    NICA’s Bachelor of Circus Arts is accredited by Swinburne University of Technology and the institute is located at its Prahran campus. The course attracts applicants from across Australia and the world and entry into the first year is highly competitive.
