Malia Walsh was trained as a ballerina with the royal academy of dance till at age 15 she fused her classical training with circus skills. She has a zest for the melodramatic and her sheer commitment has seen her rise to dizzying heights as an acrobat. With her acerbic tongue and sharp wit she is an exemplary performer to behold.
Kali is and an eloquent and experienced physical performer specializing in Lyra (spinning hoop), tissue, hulla hoops and dance. Kali has been performing since the age of 10, and became a member of the Flying Fruit Fly circus circus at 14, where her love of circus began.

Kali was selected to work with CIRCA and performed in their art end show ‘Chroma’ and also featured in Silverchair's filmclip “If you keep losing sleep”.

Mike's strictly underground attitude towards music has earned him a reputation as a DJ who can open an entire crowd's mind to fresh, innovative music but still know how to make it fun at the same time.
Having worked in several local record stores earlier in his career enabled Mike to develop his ear & build a solid collection of music. Not content with just being known as a deep house DJ, Mike has managed to make a name for himself also playing more eclectic freestyle DJ sets where he explores the depths of jazz, funk, soul, roots & beyond.
Having the ability to play such a wide variety of music has given Mike the opportunity to be the local DJ of choice given the task of setting the mood for many touring acts to take the reigns. He has been billed alongside the likes of Derrick Carter, Henrik Schwarz, Metro Area & Mark Farina at Melbourne's top house music nights. With the more freestyle DJ sets, he has supported DJs such as Jazzanova, Quantic, Nickodemus & Ben Westbeech as well as live acts including Amp Fiddler, Mayer Hawthorne & Crazy Penis. Mike has also started performing alongside funk and soul vocalist Kylie Auldist (of The Bamboos) live on PA. They recently made their debut together at Summadayze 2010 in Melbourne.
2010 promises to be a big year with more international support gigs, more releases on his record label Deepermotions Music & waiting for the right amount of inspiration to move into music production. Stay tuned.
