Poncho Circus present Underground

Canberra’s newest Circus company present there sell out show Underground one more time at the Belconnen community Theater. Poncho Circus is a group of skilled, young performers from Canberra’s very own Warehouse Circus. All ten of the troupe’s performers are multi talented acrobats, each proficient in a number of disciplines while also specialising in their own unique skill set such as handstands, juggling, tumbling and trapeze.

Their show Underground explores a world where circus is banned. With acts that combine the style and choreography of companies like CIRCA with a fresh sense of humor and a fantastic sound track written and performed by the circus performers themselves.

This is a serious circus show that doesn’t take it’s self to seriously.

At the Belconnen Community Theater
Tonight (Friday) only 7 Pm
Suitable for all ages

Tickets available here

Or at the door

Friday night at the Polo

John Lollback – 7.30
The Magic Rob Universe – 8.15
Little Mac and The Monster Men – 9.00
The Feldons – 10.00
Space Party – 11.00

From the FB blurb:

“Under extreme duress the CMC has been forced to host a bunch of lunatics and miscreants pretending to be musicians and travelling under such outrageous pseudonyms as “The Magic Rob Universe” “Space Party” “The Feldons” “Little Mac and the Monster Men” and the most unlikely “John Lollback”. This unruly mob are likely to play loud music which might or might not have the unpleasant side effect of making people move their bodies in sync with the beating drums and rhythmic bass.”

A dose of 60s mod/pop, some retro 70s prog rock, some pyschobilly and surf punk. All with a soloist to start!

How can you go wrong?
