Performing death defying balances and extraordinary acrobatics they continued to entice and entertain the audience.
Kraken Bounty Hunters, Steampunkers and freaks were roving around Middleton Beach at Christmas time displaying their timeless talents for the general Public’s amusement.
Great characters were discovered during the workshops and have been elaborated on further in our Carnival newspaper, The Seafarer’s Straight.
CircaSEA at Perth Royal Show
1 October 2011
SEA was invited to perform at the Perth Royal Show as part of the City of Albany’s Guest Town exhibition. Circus Trainer, Beth O’Neill, and a handful of the circus kids developed a twenty-minute performance and hosted workshops teaching different types of manipulation from hula-hoops to juggling over the first weekend of the Show (October 1st and 2nd). The performance was based on an urban/street comedy theme, containing a mix of manipulation, tumbling, adagio and slapstick. As ever, our crew did us all proud and our demonstration added colour, vibrancy and fun to the Albany exhibition, as we do in Albany itself.
