RAILED & PREHYSTERICAL

 WINNERS OF THE BEST CABARET AWARD AT THE BRIGHTON FRINGE 2015 HEAD FIRST ACROBATS RETURN TO THE FESTIVAL WITH TWO SPECTACULAR SHOWS RAILED FOR ADULTS & PREHESTERICAL FOR CHILDREN

 

RAILED

From human pyramids to spinning in gigantic wheels, to mystifying tricks – with promises of laughter and awe in equal measure, ‘RAILED’ was a break-out hit of the Brighton Fringe 2019  and now the boys are most certainly back in town.

“This show was just utter genius and much the best thing this reviewer has seen at the Fringe this year. It’s 5 stars for this show and here’s hoping they come back soon!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Brighton and Hove News (Brighton 2019)

 “I loved this from beginning to end”. Fringe Review (Brighton 2019)

A testosterone-fuelled comedy circus that dares to tread where no butch blokes usually go! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Adelaide Glam

 Winner of the best circus weekly award at the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

RAILED is a spectacular Western themed circus, combining the trademark physical talents, intricate figures, finely chiselled bodies and comic capers of the creators of the smash hit ‘Elixir’ – winner of the Best Circus and Physical Theatre Award at 2018 Adelaide Fringe.

Bare-chested circus meets bare-knuckle bar fights. Railed is a racy, heart-stopping adult show of breath-taking acrobatics and mad-cap storytelling, featuring a rogues’ gallery of the most wanted bad-asses this side of Dodge City. The Head First gunslingers are planning to paint the town red, to head audiences off at the pass, ransack their hearts, ambush their nights and leave them begging for mercy

Directed by Debra Batton and John WaltonRailed features a variety of talents: Callan Harris, the powerful yet standoffish vagrant showing off immense feats of balance, Jordan Twartz, World class Diabolo performer and acrobat, the resident barman keeping the boys liquored up and ready for action; Liam Dummer, world class aerial straps performer and acrobatic flyer Anthony Saltalamacchia, Acrobatic and teeterboard performer, plays the town drunk.

23rd May – 4th June @ The Brighton Spiegeltent 

 

PREHYSTERICAL 

 

PreHysterical is a hilarious circus show for children and parents of all ages, following three foolish Neanderthals as they struggle to survive the savage natural world. Avoiding predators, navigating harsh environments, and learning to work together are all explored with marvellous circus skills and achingly funny slapstick.

“Hysterically funny! Hysterical, historical, extravagant” Fest Mag

They may not know how to make fire (or bathe), but these Neanderthals really know how to put on a show that’s hilarious and spectacular in equal measure.

Join Thomas, Chelsea and Alex. – three bumbling Neanderthals – as they navigate escaping wild animals, crossing rivers, finding food and making fire, all whilst executing fantastic circus tricks. The physical humour is perfectly executed – to the great amusement of kids and parents alike, and the ridiculously impressive acrobatics are so slick, you can expect gasps and wows from the audience.

Winner of best children’s performance weekly Award at the 2020 Perth Fringe Festival, and the best children’s performance weekly at the Adelaide Fringe 2022.

Aerial stunts and floor acrobatics make for truly incredible circus; this, combined with tongue-in-cheek humour and the silliest of stories means that PreHysterical is for everyone.

28th May – 4th June @ The Brighton Spiegeltent
