Kinetica is a not-for-profit contemporary circus company and circus school based in Perth, Western Australia. Formed in 2012 by a collective of passionate local circus artists, Kinetica’s performances blend highly skilled circus acts with dance, quirky theatrics and hilarious off-the-wall story lines. In 2013, Kinetica’s debut self-titled show was nominated for both the ‘Best Circus’ and ‘Spirit of the Fringe’ awards in Perth’s Fringe World Festival. !
Kinetica runs circus training programs for children (aged 5 years +), teenagers and adults specialising in the teaching of aerial acts as well as contortion, acrobatic and hand balancing training. Kinetica’s circus courses are progressive from beginner to performance level and are designed by Senior Coaches, Rebecca McMahon and Sarah Ritchie, who have applied their skills and expert knowledge of human movement and motor learning, from their concurrent careers of Physiotherapy and Elite Artistic Gymnastics Coaching respectively, to the safe and effective teaching of circus arts. !
‘A very talented bunch of young artists. Show was entertaining, comical and wowed the crowd’, ‘mind-blown’, ‘humour, death defying feats, lots of energy, a great atmosphere and a carnivorous couch… 5 stars’, ‘unfreakingbelievable’, ‘a trippy sensory delight’, ‘uproariously funny one minute and hauntingly beautiful the next. Perth can be justifiably proud of this little troupe’.
