The all-new BIG BENNIES... bringing circus, cabaret, vaudeville and other performances to the next level, as never before seen on the south side of Melbourne. Since launching early 2010 the ‘South Side Show’ has quickly become Melbourne’s undisputed weekly home of vaudeville, circus and cabaret. Big Bennies steps it up a notch!
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 served up DJs Mike Gurrieri & Andrew Padula.
FEATURING DAN GOLDING (AERIAL)
Born in Australia and growing up in Broken Hill NSW, Danny embraced dancing as much as he could in a small town before making the decision to move to Sydney at 17 to continue his studies at Newtown High School of Performing Arts. This proved to be the best decision he could have made as following his time in Sydney, he relocated to Adelaide to continue his training at the Adelaide Centre for the Arts (formerly known as AIT) and completed three years full-time. In 2005 he then commenced work with the Australian Dance Theatre under esteemed choreographer, Garry Stewart. This was a dream come true for Danny, who worked with the company for two years. He performed in Devolution, The Age Of Unbeauty, Held, and Ignition. Danny also had the opportunity to travel with the company to the Netherlands, Japan, Spain, France and Belgium. In 2007 Danny joined Royal Caribbean Productions and has performed on the Independence, Brilliance. and Oasis of the Seas. He later returned back to Australia to earn a place in Australia's So You Think You Can Dance top 20, in which he successfully competed making top 12. Danny has worked various artists including Sam Sparrow, The Potbelleez, Rikki-Lee Coulter, Darren Hayes, Anthony Callea, Cassie Davis, and Rozalla. He is now completing his Advanced Diploma of Circus Arts at NICA, specializing in Aerials and Chinese Pole.
