Gravity becomes optional for the four beautiful ladies from TEOC Circus, who present their acrobatic skills in an elegant and fun-filled manner. The team includes Josie Wardrope, Alyssa Moore, Rachael Boyd, and Maya Tregonning, each donning nothing more than a bodysuit and a pair of shorts. The ladies bring back adore and awe from the audience as they do an array of acts with very few props (an apple, a rope, a plank, and 4-5 bars, to name a few).
The level of finesse and dedication demonstrated by these talented ladies throughout the show was inspiring, not to mention entertaining, and most of all - one not to miss at the Adelaide Fringe. While there is no dialogue throughout the show, the energy and mental conversations that the ladies emanate through their movements and facial expressions is more than enough to help us as the audience follow what is being presented in front of us. The music accompanying the different acts further helped with accentuating the movements and causing an adrenalin rush, every time the ladies progressed towards the 'encore' of each act.
Personally, I loved how each of the four ladies showcased their mischievous sides and incorporated their silly shenanigans and friendly pranks into the choreography of the performance. As my friend and plus 1, Michelle, commented, "it is interesting and brilliant to see physical theatre that is completely run by ladies and it also goes to prove that it isn't necessary to have a male presence in a circus style show".
TEOC Circus may have been in business for just over a year, but in a short span of time, they have taken their shows nationally and internationally and have also won two awards. So, it's no surprise that these ladies are all about delivering top quality skills around gymnastics, unreal yet amazing full-body strength, and cheeky camaraderie in just under an hour.
Entropy will be performing at the Speakeasy Tent in Gluttony as part of Adelaide Fringe till March 4. Get your tickets here.
