A new acrobatic show to be held at Circus Arts HQ will continue, despite the lead character and acrobat breaking her foot.

Director of No Excuses, Chloe de Buyl-Pisco, says it is bound to be a challenge for the whole cast and crew, ‘but Jane Rooke, who plays the heroine of the story, is no quitter.’

‘With 16 other performers, this is an explosive and very physically demanding non-stop circus show that looks at the formative moments in our lives.’

Chloe says the performance is about triumph over injury, ‘and we hope to continue that message with a carefully considered last-minute rewrite of the whole show, so as to make the physical demands of Jane’s role less risky.’

The shows run Friday and Saturday, December 18 and 19, from 7.30pm.

Tickets online at www.circusarts.com.au or call 6685 6566. Circus Arts is located at 17 Centennial Circuit, Arts & Industry Park, Byron Bay.
