AAR-MICF22-Circus-Trick-TeasePerformed by the acclaimed company, Circus Trick Tease, vibrant spandex & high-vis hot pants lands acrobats, hula hoopers and strong women in the skill, thrill & comedy romp, Werk It at Forum Downstairs for the 2022 Melbourne International Comedy Festival: 14 – 24 April.

Combining the minds of a tradie, spin instructor and crossfit fiend into a part-comedy, part-workout, part-dance routine, the critically acclaimed performance is the chaotic yet cheeky world of Werk It.

Diving legs & buttocks first into globally renowned Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the quintuplet comprise hula hoop royalty Lisa Lottie, sensational Richard Sullivan, strong woman Cassia Jamieson, world class circus artist Vincent van Berkel and comedy star Malia Walsh to create a multi-award winning fiesta of sass, swagger & sultry dexterity.

Performing an ensemble of eight shows straight, in the cultural hub of Melbourne – The Forum Downstairs, the group will shake, thrust & shimmy their way into the hearts of audiences of all ages & backgrounds.

Having spent the past 15 years hip thrusting their way into an Aerobics Oz Style fever dream across Australia, as well as internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Werk It’ creators Circus Trick Tease have ticked off a trio of sold out seasons abroad, a multitude of accolades for their diverse range of work and numerous 5 star reviews.

Werk It is a riot of color and movement = big tricks delivered by an all-star cast with more sass and swagger than a TLC videoclip.
