The biggest brat-attack with a star studded line-up of Australia’s finest circus artists and mischief-makers. Witness hula hoops at top speed, acrobatics at alarming heights, and some seriously cheeky clowning antics, performed by the stars of Briefs in a manner that will out-BRAT kids of all ages. Brat Kids Carnival is ideal for youngsters with a taste for wild circus skills, pumping music, ridiculous acts of amazement and eye popping party tricks.
Brat Kids Carnival comes from The Briefs company who are also performing their adult burlesque, circus and cabaret spectacular at London Wonderground for a two month run throughout August and September, as well as headlining the Glastonbury Festival’s Big Top, appearing on The John Bishop Show on BBC1 in July and taking to the stage at Pride London and West End Live. Brat Kids Carnival uses the variety format to create an alternative circus show especially for kids. Risky and colourful, the cast demonstrate their incredible skill and talent in a context for children without dumbing down the content – proving that their talent is not just for naughty adults.
The show demonstrates the line between kids and adult entertainment being bent, rather than blurred. The same skills that dazzle adults also impress children. Most importantly the show is loads of fun. The six Aussies and one New Yorker are powered by a fierce energy as they mix up a potent blend of circus skills, song and silliness, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze and hula hooping to create a fun-filled show for all the family.
The disorderly Briefs line up comprises Fez Faanana as the ring master, Captain Kidd strutting his hula hooping stuff, the weird and wonderful Dallas Dellaforce as the bug eyed alien “opera” singer Marjorie Stuart-Baxter, one of Australia’s leading aerialists, contortionists and circus trainers, Thomas Worrell, who literally ties himself in knots; Monkey, escaped from New York Zoo, and fresh-faced circus brats Lachy Shelley – from CIRCA ZOO and FLIPSIDE – and Louis Biggs – from FLYING FRUIT FLY CIRCUS – who have the audience yelling for more.
