Gala Show 2015

Ross & Allan in "R n B Rock"

We are proud to announce our first act: Ross and Allan in "R n B Rock".

You may have seen these guys perform at other conventions or karaoke bars whilst clearing out the place. Well now they have moved in together, got married, and put together a performance full of some average juggling and complete stupidity!

Piers van Looy

Originally a poi spinner, Piers learnt to hoop ironically about two years ago. At some point he accidentally became addicted and has since been developing a unique style of shoulder & onbody hooping. He also makes cool circus videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/vanloopmedia/videos

Cai Lear

Cai Lear has been a juggler since he was 15 and studied at Circomedia 10 years ago. After leaving circomedia he had no idea how to make any money from his craft. So he got into hospitality and catering working in bars and restaurants. Since then has developed his own style combining juggling and flair bartending. Multiple cocktail shakers with multiple balls.

"It is safe to say I still have no idea how to make any money from my craft, but Iam just happy to have my own style now."

In her act “Control” is a performance about liberation where she is experimenting with the connection of character, body-movement and object-manipulation.“

He'll be introducing the fabulous acts to you, and perhaps making them look even better by doing the occasional silly trick in between."
