Circus Showcase 2014: ROUGE et BLANC

The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA)

Australia’s Centre of Excellence in Contemporary Circus Arts Training


 Circus Showcase 2014:


Solo acts, a singing MC and circus spectacles that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

The annual Circus Showcase at the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) is almost upon us and the final year circus students are busy refining their graceful, dynamic and captivating acts. The showcase, titled ROUGE et BLANC, will run from July 1 to 5 at the custom built National Circus Centre in Prahran. This year, two distinct cabaret-style performances have been created, one called 'ROUGE' and the other 'BLANC'. Each show will be performed four times throughout the eight show season and will feature half of NICA's 20 final year students presenting their circus specialties in a unique and diverse way. Attend one (or both) shows to see the incredible range of talent from Australia's future circus stars! 

Individual narratives will be presented that showcase the students’ chosen circus specialities as a culmination of their three years of study in Australia’s only Bachelor of Circus Arts. These artists will test the limits of physical strength with an eclectic mix of circus skills including: Aerial Cube, Aerial Straps, Chinese Pole, Contortion, Duo and Single Rope, German Wheel, Hand Balancing, Head Balancing, Head Trapeze, Hula Hoops, Juggling, Roué Cyr, Single Point Trapeze, Tightwire, Tissu, Tumbling and Unicycle.

"ROUGE et BLANC”  is directed by NICA’s Head of Performance, Megan Jones and will welcome talented MC Aurora Kurth to create a charming and engaging atmosphere for the performances.
