Show Description

Head Count is not your grandmother's Vaudeville. It's a velvety circus cabaret of cheek and charm. A variety of edgy and contemporary circus acts featuring Australia’s hottest emerging performers. Twenty breathtaking displays of gravity-defying physical feats, brought to you by Company 23 and the National Institute of Circus Arts.

NICA's graduating students present the culmination of three years of intense training, with exhilarating acts including: trapeze, hoop diving, acrobatics, hand to hand, rope, hula hoop, contortion, handstands, manipulation, and straps, interspersed with comedic transitions and outrageous skits.
