Sassy, skilled and funny AF!


Werk It is an all-new, late-night, high-energy, acrobatic comedy romp from the award winning from the award winning, star studded Circus Trick Tease.

Celebrating spandex, high-vis, vitality and vigor! The low carb love-child of a tradie, a spin instructor and a cross-fit fiend. Werk It is a riot of colour and movement – big tricks delivered by an all-star cast with more sass and swagger than a TLC videoclip.

This over-the-top ensemble will be hip thrusting their way into an Aerobics Oz Style fever dream all festival long!

Featuring outrageous circus by Australia’s hottest acrobats, including award-winning Vincent van Berkel (This Side Up), hula hoop sensation Lisa Lottie (La Soiree), manipulation idol Richard Sullivan (Throw Catch Collective), real life strong woman Cassia Jamieson (Circus Trick Tease) and fierce as hell Malia Walsh (Can’t Face).
