South Side Show
Since launching early 2010 the ‘South Side Show’ has quickly become Melbourne’s undisputed weekly home of vaudeville, circus and cabaret.
On stage, dance floor or hanging from the ceiling, every Saturday night this lush art deco inspired venue comes to life with the crème of local and international guest performers alongside a rambunctious crowd comprised of circus kids, carney folk and vaudevillians.
With a reputation as a world class cocktail bar as well as one of the city’s most alternative club nights, the South Side Show parties till the wee hours each Saturday to the sounds of soul, funk, jazz, hiphop and cabaret show tunes.
3 HIGH ACROBATICS
A blonde, brunette and Japanese guy walk onto a building site. Their mission is to construct a
contemporary circus show. Using comedy, circus, parody and music watch as a gym junkie, ninja and
reformed hippy endeavour to explore what it takes to make a piece of 'contemporary art'. Watch as 3
high acrobatics knock off!
The members of 3 high acrobatics, who met and trained at the National Institute of Circus Arts, come from very
diverse backgrounds. Highly respected in their fields of stunt work, flying trapeze and fire spinning, these three
acrobats come together to poke fun at contemporary circus. 3 High Acrobatics use a home renovation show
format to deliver their debut show.
Our zen gardener Taka has come from Japan and over ten years experience as a stuntman, Taka brings a wealth of experience and talent. Having a third dan black belt in karate provides Taka with a very unique style of acrobatics.
Our okka builder Sam started his career as a flying trapeze artist. Having a background in theatre and music
Sam brings a comedic element that is priceless.
Chris, our painter, started his career travelling around Australia fruit picking and fire spinning, he
soon turned his hobby into a career. Being the first fire performer accepted into NICA Chris brings a unique
creativity and style to compliment this impressive trio.
Three High Acrobatics new show ‘Knock Off’ looks to entertain our audience through exciting, humorous and
highly skilled circus acts using apparatus such as teeterboard, ladder, manipulation, aerial rope, partner
acrobatics, pitching, music and comedy.
