What's On


Head First Acrobats present, as a part of the 2019 Melbourne Fringe Festival


Well known for their international sensation, Elixir - smash hit of 2018 and winner of Best Circus and Physical Theatre Award at Adelaide Fringe (along with a slew of sold-out shows all over the world) - the boys from Head First Acrobats premiere their latest high voltage offering, Railed, at this years' Melbourne Fringe Festival.

A Western-themed Circus Spectacular combining trademark physical talents, finely chiselled bodies, and impeccable comic timing, prepare yourself for a collision of bare-chested Circus and bare-knuckle bar fights.

Directed by Debra Batton and John Walton, Railed features much lauded Head First Acrobats ensemble members AJ Saltalamacchia, Callan Harris, Adam O’Connor-McMahon and Harley Timmermans. A racy, heart-stopping display of the finest acrobatics, leave your expectations at home, come to the wrong side of the tracks, and let the boys of Head First steal your hearts.
