Fringe Royal Rumble with Mikelangelo & The Tin Star
Presented by RED BENNIES & THE MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL 2011
With Mikelangelo & The Tin Star
Fringe Festival South Side Wrap Party where performers wrestle it out Mexican style to live surf rock!
Lets get ready to ruuuummbble!
Witness the cream of Melbourne Fringe Festivals performers, hand picked to enter into mortal combat in the Red Bennies Mexican Wrestling ring of carny carnage! Burlesque vs Vaudeville! Comedians vs Cabaret! Mime vs Circus! All to the sounds of live surf rock and hosted by non other than Melbourne’s own ‘Mikelangelo’!
The infamous Mikelangelo (frontman of Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen) formed The Tin Star in late 2009 to channel his love of Western cinema soundtracks with his love of 50's and 60's instrumental surf.
The resulting sound has been described as:
"...John wayne meets gidget at a sex club in Berlin" - ABC
"...Like being in the opening scene of a Russ Meyer's movie" - FASTER LOUDER
RUMBLING IN THE RING..
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.
