NICA's Last Orders

The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA), Australia’s leading contemporay circus arts training venue presents Circus Showcase 2015: LAST ORDERS!

Last Orders! is a delicious circus degustation featuring the 2015 graduating students from the National Institute of Circus Arts. This rollicking show will run from June 11 to 20, 2015 at NICA’s state-of-the-art National Circus Centre in Prahran.

Directed by James Brown and Helene Embling, Last Orders! plays on the behavioural code associated with being a high-class waiter, while drawing inspiration from the classic, time-honoured Parisian waiters’ race of the 1930’s.

Set in an alluring and intimate venue equipped with a full bar and cabaret seating, NICA’s third year students will showcase their immense circus talents as they inhabit the role of waiters, a profession that also requires a great deal of agility, balance, elegance and precisio

Escape to a 1930’s Parisian café with this slick and intimate show served with breathtaking circus skills and madcap antics.

Audiences will be served a magnificent entertainment feast with the 16 artists performing incredible acts specially selected from the menu and made to order. This a rare opportunity to glimpse the future stars of the circus world right before they step out onto the global stage that awaits them. At this café, the plat-du-jour consists of: Chinese pole, tightwire, hula hoops, acrobatics, clowning, aerial straps, handstands, hand balancing, juggling, single point trapeze, and tumbling.
