|Hard Sell - A circus variety showcase|
The National Institute of Circus Arts presents HARD SELL: an exclusive auction of Australia’s finest circus artists, featuring 15 thrilling works of art in a variety line-up.
Set in a high-class auction room under the unpredictable gavel of subversive MC Mitch Jones (Australia’s Got Talent 2019, Autocannibal), Hard Sell sees 17 artists transform the stage into a bidding war for Australia’s newest, elite circus talent.
Life imitates art - from the comedic to the dramatic - in a showcase line-up including trapeze, roue Cyr, tightwire, handstands, acrobatics and more amazing physical skills.
Circus industry attends NICA’s third year student showcase performance to scout talent for national and international touring, so the stakes are high and sales may be made.
Spectacular, creative, and dazzling, secure your tickets before you can say “going, going, gone”.
