Three High Acrobatics proudly bring you CIRQUE DU BLOKE – running for SEVEN SHOWS ONLY

Join our quintessential Aussie Blokes Bazza and Gazza on their ill fated camping adventure. As the mishaps pile up for these accident prone best mates, the bravado is tested. When ‘She’ll be right’ isn’t right what is left behind? A sensitive new age guy? A metro sexual? A Tony Abbott supporter? Multi award winning circus company, Three High Acrobatics, take you camping as they search to discover whats buried beneath pie crumbs and longnecks.

Highly respected in their fields flying trapeze and fire spinning, the Three High Acrobatics founders (who met and trained at the National Institute of Circus Arts) come from very diverse backgrounds: Sam Aldham began in circus working at Club Med Resorts as a flying trapeze performer and instructor. Sam attended NICA where he trained in Cord de lisse, Comedy Acrobatics and Hoop Diving. With a background in theatre, he has over seven years experience as a circus performer and tutor.

Starting his career as a fire performer, Chris Carlos obsession quickly transformed him into one of the best fire spinners in the world. After many years performing, creating and travelling, his creative and highly skilled fire spinning acts saw him accepted into NICA where he trained in Adagio, Comedy Acrobatics, and Russian Bar.

In 2011 Three High Acrobatics was awarded the Circus Oz Award for circus and in 2012 won the Gasworks Circus Showdown Competition

Their first creation KNOCK OFF had great success with SOLD OUT shows around Australia, CIRQUE DU BLOKE is the long awaited second production by crowd favourites Three High Acrobatics.
