Thursday January 21 – Sunday January 24
Bask in the glow of the fairy lights, sip a drink from the Carnibar and soak up a balmy summer evening in Fremantle before heading into the Big Top for an evening of circus. First up is Le Double Bill, two shows in one! “Get Fit with Jane Funda” will explore the challenges of a fluorescent 80s disco aerobics workout. Then, “Down.Rebound.” will take you on a journey of friendship, connection and the grit required to put on a show. Le Double Bill is presented by Simon Wood, Ben Kotovski-Steele and Cat Ranieri with support from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
After the lights, acrobatics and lycra of Le Double Bill, grab another round from the Carni-Bar and settle in for “The Fall, A Divorce and Peacocks”, Chloe Shadlow’s solo show about falling hard, spinal injuries and one woman’s audacity to bounce back.
From fluoro lights to fractured hearts, dynamic duos to daring women, Fringe at CircusWA’s Freo Big Top has got stories to share for all lovers of circus, determination, friendship and theatrics.
This is an accessible event. Please contact CircusWA with any access requirements.

Where do you go when your world shrinks to the doors and walls of your home?
Through the imaginations of our youth troupe during isolation, and guided by guest Director Jens Altheimer via zoom, witness the peeling open of unexplored possibilities of story-telling delivered with hilarity and generosity. Come immerse yourself in this performance landscape at 360 degrees and journey through the Freo Big Top where walls and doors shift and your sense of stability may be tilted.
The Ungrounded development has been funded by the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries.
Join us at 6pm for refreshments at the Carni-Bar in the park.
CircusWA acknowledges the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation are the spiritual and cultural birdiyangara (custodians) of the land upon which we train, create and perform.
Fremantle is Walyalup, sited on the banks of the Derbal Yerrigan. We recognise this land was never ceded and acknowledge our first people’s continuing connection to boodja (land), kayep (waters) and Noongar culture.
We pay respect to our Elders past and present.
