Join South Australian Circus Centre’s Performance Troupe during Adelaide Fringe 2021 with their show Breathe in The Flamingo at Gluttony, Rymill Park from 20 – 28 February and witness the talents of some of South Australia’s most skillful young acrobats.
Breathe is a journey of introspection. The story of what’s inside our heads isn’t always reflected on the outside. When we allow ourselves to look deeper inside without judgement we start to see inner truths. Recognition of these truths can set us onto a path of realisation and direct us to acceptance, resilience and self discovery.
Breathe is created by Adelaide’s newest generation of acrobats. The show’s captivating soundtrack is a completely original composition by one of the young performers, the amazingly talented, 18 year old Phoenix Pastro. The costumes are designed and created by 14 year old Sarah Norton and 16 year old Juliet Macleod.
The routines are the product of the creativity and collaboration of these astounding young artists, join them as they use their breath to take you on a journey filled with genuine group connection and astounding acrobatics.
South Australian Circus Centre’s Performance Troupe is part of SACC’s Artist Development Program and is run under the guidance of Artistic Director Joshua Hoare and Artist Development Coordinator Jonathan Dragt (Director of Breathe).
