Flipside Circus takes a fresh look at the world we leave behind in its show Wasteland, coming to RPAC at 7pm on Friday, October 5.

Besieged by mountains of rubbish, extraordinary performers recycle and reuse discarded items, reimagining circus and what our future could be.  The 12 young stars of this performance demonstrate extraordinary talent while conveying a strong message about the world young people are going to inherit. Performers are aged between nine and 17 years. 

Wasteland is an energetic and engaging circus performance about potential, hope, resilience, and survival. The show combines aerial and fast-paced tumbling routines – replacing recognisable circus apparatus with re-purposed materials and scrap.

Developed by Flipside’s performance troupe, renowned circus artist Chelsea McGuffin, Flipside Creative Producer and dramaturge Robert Kronk, and designer Josh McIntosh, Wasteland poses the question of what sort of world will we leave behind?

 Tickets are $20-$23 and can be booked through the RPAC Box Office on 3829 8131 or by visiting rpac.com.au (booking fees are $4.30 by phone and $5 online per transaction).
