Proudly presenting their third-year student ensemble show Famous , you can catch performances from 14-22 June 2024 at NICA National Circus Centre, 39-59 Green Street, Prahran. Seventy-five minutes long, choose from 7.30pm shows or a 2pm matinee. There are discounts for group bookings, concession, Mob tix and under 30s. Get your tickets here . Do note the show may contain references to adult themes, loud music, fire and smoke haze. For ages 13+ parental guidance is recommended.

Trapped in a never-ending cycle of posing, smiling, and waving to adoring fans, for whom the novelty never seems to cease - will these celebrities escape their prison, or risk it all and ascend until they’re immortalised amongst the stars? This posse of egomaniacs are about to discover that the road to hell is paved with red carpet and a God complex that can only get them so far. See these performers tumble, twirl, and fly in the shoes of the rich and famous as they perform acts of swinging trapeze, Chinese pole, acrobatics and more. It's an Oscar-worthy performance of opulence and grandeur, that's equally toxic, delusional, batty, and brilliant.

Don't miss this event where the students will be lavishly draped in costumes designed by Savannah Wegman (Biographica, Lyric Opera Theatre Works) with the assistance of Melbourne Polytechnic fashion design students. A feverish mixtape by musical maestro Darius Kedros (THIS, Rising Festival 2023) adds the appropriate amount of oomph, and shedding light on scenes of chaos is Spencer Herd (Frame Narrative, Old Fitz Theatre 2024), a live performance lighting designer with an eye for detail so sharp it makes 20/20 vision look like an ocular impairment. NICA is Australia’s Centre of Excellence for training in contemporary circus arts and proudly one of eight national arts training institutes (Arts8).
