The fusion of traditional dance, pop-culture and storytelling has been wowing audiences for years, so we reckon this should be high on the list of shows you can enjoy with your family.
3. Hands some Feet
Perth boy Jeromy Zwick returns to his hometown with his creative partner Liisa Naykki for some more hands and feet mastery. Zwick is the hands, Naykki is the feet. Together, they are an amazing duo.
The show, which was a hit at the 2018 Festival, seamlessly combines startling juggling skills and tightwire work by the innovative acrobats. Your hand will be clapping and your fee will be tapping.
4. Fuego Carnal

Buzz around this one heating up! There will be jaw-dropping moments, impressive choreography and you will have a laugh too with the wicked sense of humour.
5. Not Romeo and Juliet
Let’s face it, William Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet is a bit of a downer, but this is Not Romeo and Juliet. Queerness and clowning collide in this hilarious remix of the classic story.
Set in a pathetic circus, this is high-octane theatrical anarchy, ridiculous physical comedy and a joyous celebration of queer love that has had critics and audiences raving.
