Spaghetti Circus’s major work for 2012, The Ready, Set… GO! Sports Show launches at Mullumbimby Showgrounds tonight and tomorrow.

It’s a show where circus collides with sport in a thrilling and spectacular ride! The joys of winning, the woes of losing and all the crazy bits in between, presented through death-defying acrobatics, playful juggling, hula-hooping madness, mind-bending contortion and hilarious clowning!

The cast consists of the immensely talented members of the Youth Performance Troupe, aged between 12 and 16 years. Some of the members have been training over 10 years and are obsessively dedicated to mastering skills in circus as well as creating innovative physical theatre and circus performance.

‘Our performers have been working hard at developing their theatrical skills that have taken their circus performance to a new and exciting level,’ says artistic director Simon Adams. ‘The performers are all from our local area, attending Mullumbimby High School, Byron High, Shearwater and Cape Byron Steiner.’

Local school students were surveyed as part of the creative development process to produce a work that truly reflects young people’s perspective about sporting culture in Australia. Members of the performance troupe were also involved in many aspects of the creative process, including developing the acts, scripting and costume design.

Spaghetti Circus will be touring the show throughout the northern rivers.

Simon Adams has drawn from his professional dance and physical theatre background to produce a unique and poignant circus performance.

The strong narrative and wacky characters in the Ready, Set… GO! show will guarantee an enjoyable experience for all the family. Whether you love or hate sport you’ll get a kick out of this show! Come along and support the insanely talented Spaghetti Circus Youth Performance Troupe!

Tonight and tomorrow night at 7pm, Mullumbimby Showgrounds, Main Arm Rd, Mullumbimby. Tickets available from 02 6684 3038 or www.spaghetticircus.org.au. Prices: $12 children, $16 adults, $50 family.
