You’ve felt the rumble of the wagons. You’ve heard the drum roll over the hill. You’ve seen the outline upon the horizon and the parade has marched through town. We’ve unfurled the canvas, hammered the pegs, popped the corn and polished the glasses. The ferris wheel is spinning, festoon sparkling and archway beckoning. The Garden is about to turn your world up-side-down. We’ve scoured the big wide world and now... here it is... Astonishing legends… Australian premieres… new kids on the block… world-renowned hits… stroboscopic butoh… mind-warping magic… dark clowning… sufi-trance dancing… free concerts… intensely gothic ukuleles… shows that five year olds will laugh their socks off at… miniscule art… grandiose spectacle… silent humour... shady trees… starry skies… a gigantic free opening party… gob-smacking sideshows… cataclysmic circus… biting cabaret and unicorns on buses. There’s no need to run away to the circus, we’ve brought it all and more to you!


UNE A RTH THE G R E ATE S T A CT S A ND THE TI NI E S T D E LI G HTS ! In 2010, we bring you not only a gorgeous parkland full of circus big tops, spiegeltents and unique performance venues, but one of our biggest and best programs ever! Still, size isn’t everything… as we know, even the tiniest spruiker can make a lot of noise! Snap up all the great stuff that jumps off the page, of course - there are a lot of familiar faces after all. Savour these delights, but make sure you also take time to explore the rest! Take a punt, unearth something wonderful and discover your own hidden treasures. It’s all here… World-renowned hits making their Adelaide debuts, THE RAP GUIDE TO EVOLUTION (USA), the dangerously hilarious RED BASTARD (USA), the mindboggling sensation PHILIP ESCOFFEY (UK) and Megan Riordan’s LUCK (IRELAND/ USA), which arrives direct from a sold-out New York season. Our favourite TV stars… ADAM HILLS, WIL ANDERSON & JOSH THOMAS. The return of LADY CAROL - the star of last year’s festival hit, A Company of Strangers, with her own show, straight from the Sydney Opera House. Guaranteed comedy gems… FRANK WOODLEY, FIONA O’LOUGHLIN, FELICITY WARD, SAMMY J & RANDY and THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE (UK/NZ). Hilarious new kids on the block, with super-value for your comedy dollar, TALL STORIES, VIGILANTELOPE & SMART CASUAL.

AND THE LITTLE ONE SAID

THE BASTARD CHILDREN - ‘CHOOSE YOUR OWN MISADVENTURE’

From a debut sell-out season this new award-winning solo work by Jess Love combines highlevel circus skills with pathos, humour and beauty to create a vision that is at once delicately touching, visually enchanting and heart-warmingly playful. Jess Love endears the audience through dark clowning, dirty acrobatics and surreal sideshow feats. ‘ ’ The Age

Beguiling audiences from Edinburgh to Melbourne and everywhere in between, the sordid, scandalous and superbly attired Bastard Children present a musical story unlike any other. Audiences are invited to choose their own misadventure - deciding what happens in a plot that weaves through twisted folk, junkyard gypsy, ragged celtic & dirty blues. A multiinstrumental jaunt, traversing genres with all the urgency of a thirsty drunkard.

BRIEFS

THE BEARDS

An all male ball busting boylesque brigade

The Beards are a bearded four-piece from Adelaide, South Australia, whose catalogue consists entirely of songs about beards and having beards. But as hilarious as this eccentric outfit are, they can be equally appreciated for their musical originality, instrumental ability and professionalism. With styles ranging from folk to rock to jazz to metal, The Beards prove themselves as talented musicians and diverse songwriters.

Join the boys in Briefs for a late nite romp of circus, gender confusion, larrikinism and good ol’ showmanship! After a series of underground cabaret club nites and a sellout season at Brisbane Festival, Briefs brings the unearthly to the garden in a counterculture of madness vs. manhood. Roll up to witness a rough and tumble of super human physical feats, gob-smacking comedy and raucous cabaret certified to send you unconscious with uncontrollable laughter.

Bearded men, put down those trimmers – the Beard Revolution has come.

Asking For Trouble presents

THE BEEZ (GERMANY)

BUBBLEWRAP & BOXES

The Beez are a four piece from Berlin playing a fast and furious mix of Eastern European and Western pop hits in an alternative folk style. The Beez rearrange popular songs in the same way Al Capone might have rearranged the face of a hapless business associate. Queen´s Bohemian Rhapsody, Nirvana´s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Music by Madonna all get overhauled. From Pop to Punk, from Polka to Salsa, they all get that Beez facelift and a new lease of life.

Winner of the 2009 Melbourne Fringe ‘Best School Holiday’ Show. A gorgeous family show set in the lost mail room - a strange, dusty nowhere land where homeless parcels and undeliverable letters live. A story about how to live bravely in a big world told using acrobatics, clowning and a whole lot of cardboard boxes!

C. W. Stoneking presents

THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE (NZ/UK)

C.W. STONEKING

The silent show that created a lot of talk was here last year; it sold out, extended its season and won multiple awards. Due to popular demand, we have brought it back. It’s still good. Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking, drama with no acting. A character with universal appeal, delightful, wry, many-layered and hilarious, he transcends the barriers of language and culture. You’ll laugh, you’ll scream and ultimately end up like The Boy - lost for words.

C.W. Stoneking is a unique blues singer/songwriter who has been performing his mesmerizing ‘hokum, blues, and Jungle music’ to growing acclaim around the world. His albums, King Hokum and Jungle Blues, both won AIR Awards for Best Blues & Roots Album 2006/2009. Jungle Blues also won the ARIA Award for Best Blues & Roots Album 2009. C.W. performs material from both albums plus newly written songs with his band, the Primitive Horn Orchestra.

CIRCUS VS SIDESHOW

THE DARK PARTY

Who really is more hardcore? First staged as an impromptu contest at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe, Circus vs Sideshow is an unscripted, unabashed and unfettered night of carnival entertainment. Hosted by celebrity guests and judged by Fringe stars, acrobatic skill is pitched against sideshow prowess through physical tests of strength, pain and endurance. With the hosts and judges throwing a little of their own talent into the ring. An unpredictable evening of circus, sideshow, music and mischief.

After standing ovations in Scotland and selling out the Sydney Opera House, The DiRtY BroTheRS make a triumphant return to Adelaide with their critically acclaimed show The Dark Party. Staple-guns, singing saws, broken glass and power tools are just some of the co-stars in this dreamscape of deranged delights. Never before has sideshow been this surreal, this sublime or this funny. ‘ ’ Adelaide Advertiser

With buckets of pop and delicious corn these 20th Century foxes will make your night. Drags Aloud skewered Sandy and Danny with their Grease Lightnin’ Drag Show, and now they’re back with another jab at Hollywood’s sacred cows and celebrities. Dave and Marg would give ‘em a five. ‘Pure unadulterated fun’ Arts Hub

As seen on Thank God You’re Here, Spicks & Specks and The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, awardwinning comedian Felicity Ward presents an intimate performance of humourous stories; experienced, written and read out by the lady herself. From an awkward encounter with a Big Issue vendor to receiving an inappropriate Hawaiian massage, there is no dose of personal truth that Felicity thinks should stay in her diary. So come in, sit back and relax knowing that it didn’t happen to you.

FRANK WOODLEY – BEWILDERBEEST

JASON CHONG’S REEL LIFE

As seen on Spicks and Specks, Thank God You’re Here and Good News Week. Life is bewildering. Injustice. Unrequited love. Grapefruit. One of Australia’s favourite comedians, Frank brings a brand new hour of stand up, physical comedy and songs to the Fringe.

Jason likes to do stand up comedy, but sometimes he gets sucked into his videos which not only ruins the flow of his jokes, but also takes him to faraway lands where real meets reel. Jason Chong’s Reel Life takes stand up comedy and video projection and asks the question “Will it blend?” The answer will hopefully be “mostly.” Come and see this show before technology rises up and kills us all. 2009 Adelaide Comedy Comedian of the Year.

FREEFALL

JOE CAMILLERI

One in twenty people have a phobia; fear of the dark or spiders, public speaking or falling from a great height. ‘Freefall’ follows seven characters as they reveal their own fears, both common and bizarre through physical theatre, dynamic acrobatics and spoken word. What are you afraid of?

Joe Camilleri is an icon of Australian music. From 1964 to 2010, Camilleri has gigged, written, toured, wailed and shaken it. From Altona to Cooktown, from Oslo to Cannes, Camilleri has shown fans and critics alike that he is a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all. It is this love and sense of adventure, that keeps Camilleri going and the punters coming back for more. The Black Sorrows first DVD “4 Days At Sing Sing” is out now.

Written and performed by Joshua Cameron. Directed by Peta Hanrahan. In association with The Dog Theatre.

STEPHEN CUMMINGS

A delicious accordion accompanied blend of songs, stories and setups with sensational punches. ‘A box of sparklers set alight and tossed into the night’ The Courier Mail ‘Phenomenal comic talent’ Scene Magazine Having reached the conclusion that stand up comedy isn’t scary enough, Liz has decided to try it in the nude… come along but please don’t tell her mother. Trained in clown with Philippe Gaulier, Liz has performed for Queensland Theatre Company, Bell Shakespeare, deBASE and “The Gooney Girls”.

‘In time Stephen Cummings will be seen as one of the great, strange Australian musical contributors, distinct and crookedly personal. Cumming’s tone is insouciant, and often very funny. His work contains many piquant details. The smallest pieces are sometimes sweet jeux d’esprit, and are like the captions you might encounter at a contemporary art installation. What deepens the work, is that this brisk, almost naïve tone is often revealed to be a mask, a public fiction, behind which a person is flinching?’ Lucky Oceans, Radio National

The Polar Bearings are not the youngest people to sail around the world. But did Jesse Martin do it with a ukulele and a piano? ‘Songs in the Sea Major’ is the maiden voyage from Melbourne musical comedy trio, The Polar Bearings.

Featuring Stuart Bowden, Margaret Paul and Tim Ross.

TALL Stories is an entertaining show featuring the next big thing in comedy... Imaan. Imaan poses a particularly captivating comedic subject as he is several different minorities in one, being short-statured and Lebanese.

Are the roses blooming in Picardy? Will we gather lilacs? Did that nightingale sing in Berkeley Square? You’ll know, ‘cos you were there…
