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

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.

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.
