Fresh from their sold out and award winning tour of the United Kingdom, Head First Acrobats are back in Australia and are touring their internationally acclaimed show Elixir. Having played to sold out crowds and after rave reviews in Australia, the United Kingdom, France and Ireland, Head First Acrobats are ready to bust out for one week at the Seymour Centre in Sydney.
Elixir is circus like you have never seen before, uninhibited by cliche or expectation, subversive and hilarious at the same time.
Acrobats fly 5 metres into the air on the teeterboard, spin upside down on the mesmerising roue cyr wheel, perform incredible one arm handstands on wobbling canes, and balance on nothing but their heads on a swinging trapeze.
Elixir is an incredible display of acrobatics and physical comedy, tied together with an eccentric narrative. An action packed hour of circus, with a cohesive story from start to finish. The story follows three bumbling (albeit handsome) scientists who attempt to create the elixir of life. The mayhem that follows is a beautiful mix of incredible acrobatics and impeccable comic timing.
Fringe dwellers, theatre lovers, circus heads and lovers of comedy, this is the show for you.
