Troppo is an explosively funny acrobatic beach party from Brisbane-based company Circa, and the show made its world premiere at the Brisbane Festival.
On a deserted island far, far away a rag tag circus troupe is washed up on a beach. Dazed and unfamiliar with their colourful new world they venture into the island with often hilarious results. Will they make it off or will the tropical, warm climate make them all go a little troppo?
Circa describe the show as “Alice in Wonderland” meets “The Tempest” and they promise a colourful journey through the dazzling landscapes of the mystical island of Troppo. A daring new acrobatic world where you need to get lost to truly find yourself.
Troppo is running until September 23 at the The Courier-Mail Piazza in South Bank. For tickets, visit the Brisbane Festival website.
The Brisbane Festival has been running around Brisbane all month but will wrap up with a bang on September 24 from with Queensland’s ultimate fireworks display Riverfire.
This year’s pyrotechnics are all set to music Brisbanites have helped choose – music that has defined living in the city in 2016. Spectators will also be wowed by aerobatics from the Australian Defence Force with RAAF Super Hornet and Army helicopter displays.
Organisers say the Victoria Bridge, South Bank, Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Captain Burke Park, Wilson’s Lookout, City Riverwalk, including Riverside Centre and Eagle Street Pier are the best vantage points to see the fireworks.
For people who have limited mobility, access is available at South Bank, Eagle Street Pier, Riverside Centre and Captain Burke Park.
