  • Byron Theatre 69 Jonson Street Byron Bay, NSW, 2481 Australia (map)

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 rave reviews in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and the United Kindgom, Head First Acrobats are ready to bust out for one night only in Byron Bay.

Elixir is circus like you have never seen before, inhibited 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.
