T0616189177 (ROUNDHOUSE10)Following big successes at the Roundhouse with Smaller, Poorer, Cheaper in 2007 and Acrobat in 2002, they’re back. After years of touring their avant-garde circus company around the world, Acrobat’s new show, Propaganda, sees a husband and wife and their two small sons create a circus show with a difference - intimately provocative and politically questioning. After indoctrinating their kids about being kind, eating their veggies and riding bikes, they take a step out of their Australian back yard into the Roundhouse with their trademark disciplined physical skills, calculated self-derision, and raw, uncompromising approach. Contains nudity and occasional swearing.

T01435098523 (LIFT02)Undomesticated and gutsy - Acrobat is daring, breathtaking and very, very funny. This earthy troupe of Australian performers revel in a mastery of skilled precision stunts and irreverent humour. Performed to industrially-charged live music interspersed with advertising slogans and self-help aphorisms, this is no soft-focus circus act. Acrobat is performance of courage and skill and is gripping to watch. A smash hit at the Adelaide Festival, audiences leave breathless with wonder and exhilaration as people of all ages are reminded just how much fun it is to play.Producer Marguerite Pepper.
