A hilarious romp through the waves with the girls of the South Coast life savers. Larrikin clowning and acro-balance come together in this 5-6 person 4 minute performance.
(Created by Penny Lowther and Soraya del Castillo with direction from Maryke Del Castillo and Alycia Battestini and choreography by Wendy Regan.)
Harking back to the early days of synchronised swimming, this beautiful and gentle performance warms the heart and puts a smile on your face. Initially an acro balance act dating from the early days of Circus WOW with creation and direction by Penny Lowther and Soraya Del Castillo, Bathing Belles has had a recent revival as a 3-4 minute hoop act with 6 or 8 gorgeous bathing belles and choreography by Helen Richards, direction by Wendy Regan and Heidi Hillier.
Their strength is unbelievable. Their French accents even worse. Yes! they can lift that plank and set it up for the ballerinas to dance upon. But who is the strongest? ‘Surely it is zis one, noh noh! it is surely ze ozer one!’ Comedy and acrobatics combine in act. Can be performed as a 4 minute stage act but best as a roving performance involving the kids in the audience as they roam around setting up their plank.
(Created by Libby Bloxham, Gaetane Potard and Jen Marshall. Costume by Angela James.)
On stilts or on-ground, this band of insects will add a real buzz to your party or festival. As a music/noise making band, with bangalele, drum and kazoo-a-buzzing or flying about and dancing to your own music or perhaps displaying their object manipulation skills, they’ll entertain and surprise.
(Costumes created in Professional development with Circus Solaris and also by Libby Bloxham.)
Named for Nancy Sinatra, The Nancies give a 3-4 minute acrobatic performance often involving some object manipulation – hoops, poi, juggle etc. There can be between 4 and 10 Nancies at any given time. Fancy that!
(Created with support from Merrigong Theatre Co, developed in the Bob Pete Studio. Concept and direction by Cheryl Moore and choreography by Wendy Regan. Further development saw new choreography by Circus WOW acrobatic group members.)
