About the Show
This is not your grandmother's Vaudeville. It's a velvety circus cabaret of cheek and charm. Prepare yourself for a variety of edgy and contemporary circus acts featuring Australia’s hottest emerging performers.
'Head Count' features twenty breathtaking displays of gravity-defying physical feats, brought to you by Company 23 and the National Institute of Circus Arts.
Join our graduating students as they 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.
"The show combines jaw dropping aerial acrobatics, modern dance, music and sound to bring you on a journey through light and dark, leaving your awe inspired and clinging to the edge of your seat. NICA knows how to deliver a good circus show." - The Plus Ones (ONERIC, 2023)
