ON/OFF is a triumphant celebration of NICA 's third-year students as they perform the fruits of their passion, blood, sweat and tears in their graduate showcase from 28 November to 2 December 2023 (preview 28 Nov) at NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts), 39-59 Green Street, Windsor. It's 7.30pm showtime and 2pm matinee with a duration of 110 mins, inclusive of a 20 min interval. See here for tickets .

Do note that the show is recommended for audiences aged 13+ and may contain partial nudity, loud music, smoke and haze. The cast on the night are - Amy Stone, Asha Colless, Celso March, Courtney Sturm, Dean Moran, Dhananjaya Johnson, Ethan Harris-Cross, Gabriella Platus, Gemma Truong, Griffin Hooper, Harrison Sweeney, Jacob Kenner, James Bartlett, Louis Green, Maya Davies, Rosa Mordaunt, Timothy Simpson, Tristan St John, and Zahnee Kimmel. This is what James Brown, Head of Circus Studies, NICA had to say: “These students have sold-out shows throughout their time at NICA, repeatedly demonstrating the versatility of their talents across theatrical comedy, dance sophistication and contemporary circus. Our industry is about to receive a wave of go-getters."

Expect to be witness to the extraordinary talents of these third-year students who will captivate you with a breathtaking display of skill, innovation and artistic expression. Be amazed as artists perform 20 rounds of contortion, duo acrobatics, tightwire, aerial silk, trapeze, hula hoop, aerial straps, hoop diving, Chinese pole, and acrobatic whip. ON/OFF is the culmination of years of dedication, passion, and relentless practice, showcasing their agility and prowess in self-directed acts that promise to leave audiences in awe with an impressive display of skill and power from a group commended for their agility and prowess, and whose reputation precedes them.

ON/OFF invites viewers to peel back the layers of an artist, revealing the little pieces of the many roles they fill on and off the stage. Audiences will bear witness to raw expression of vulnerability and strength as they each take turns in the spotlight with commanding presence. The individual acts will be woven together with projection, live-feeds of backstage, and audio overlay of students sharing glimpses of their lives beyond the spotlight.
