Run away with the circus
For those who will never outgrow the beauty of the circus, The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) will present 'Dreams from the Second Floor', a new performance of circus work featuring NICA graduates and directed by Firenza Guidi.

The quirky and unique event opens on November 26 and runs until December 6 at the NICA circus centre venue in Prahran.

Dreams from the Second Floor will showcase some of Circa NICA's most recent graduates.

Audiences can expect a unique show full of technical artistry from twenty one multi-talented artists whose circus skills range from aerial performances to contortion, hand balancing, hula hoops, trapeze, tightwire, tumbling and much more.

Dreams from the Second Floor, created by Italian director Firenza Guidi is an independent and award-winning theatre, circus and visual artist who has spent the past twenty years developing her unique style of training and performance and creating shows throughout Europe.

This show, performed entirely in front of the audience (there's no backstage) is set to 'explore different types of dreams from
those which come to us at night to those which
we carry with us through our waking reality.'
NICA is Australia's Centre of Excellence for training in contemporary circus arts. Graduates of NICA have gone on to pursue exciting careers both locally and internationally and have contributed to the development of Melbourne's vibrant circus arts industry. The course is accredited by Swinburne University of Technology and attracts applicants from around the world.

The show runs for 90 minutes and parental guidance is suggested for those under 16 years of age.
