2018 Graduates Poppy and Zion Performing in Circus Oz’s NEON

Poppy Fairbairn and Zion Martyn are well known around the NICA halls, for their impressive adagio and partner acrobatic skills. We even witnessed Poppy balance (in pointe shoes!) on Zion’s head in their 2018 Showcase performance.

Fast forward to only a short few months after graduating, and the power couple have been picked up by Circus Oz. Armed with legwarmers, big hair and fluoro workout gear, Poppy and Zion will perform in NEON, as part of Adelaide Fringe. The show, which is an ode to the 80s, will be showing 15 February – 3 March at the Garden of Unearthly Delights.

In their first year at NICA, the duo quickly identified their background in dance, circus and martial arts would make for some dynamic partner work in risley and adagio.

Performance highlights included playing zombies in their second year ensemble, delighting the audience with their hilarious slapstick moves in Qu’est-ce Que C’est? and performing a stunning, nutcracker-themed, adagio routine for their Showcase act.

Now they’re off embarking on their next feat and we can’t wait to see all the hair gel, sweat bands and big moves.

Good luck Poppy and Zion, the NICA community will be cheering you on!
