About NICA Performs

From time to time, our building transforms to showcase the latest emerging talent of the circus industry. Sweeping away the crashmats and enveloping the seating bank in velveteen curtains, our beloved National Circus Centre converts into an immersive theatre space located just off Chapel Street, Prahran.

NICA routinely invites national and international directors to work alongside students to produce shows that are truly inspiring. Performances double as assessment pieces for our artists, who work on these projects with admirable dedication throughout the year.


14 – 22 June

Directed by Carita Farrer Spencer

You're invited to tumble, twirl, and fly in the shoes of the rich and famous as they perform acts of swinging trapeze, Chinese pole, acrobatics and more in their third-year ensemble show, Famous.

An Oscar-worthy performance of opulence and grandeur, Famous is toxic, delusional, batty, and brilliant.

Content Warning: PG 13+ (parental guidance recommended).
The show may contain references to adult themes, loud music, fire, and smoke haze.
