Presented by Head First Acrobats in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Winner – Best Circus and Physical Theatre Adelaide Fringe 2018

Elixir is circus with a difference! Uninhibited by cliché or expectation, subversive and hilarious, the story follows three enthusiastic acrobatic scientists who attempt to create the elixir of life.

The mayhem that follows is a beautiful mix of incredible acrobatics and impeccable comic timing.

The boys are here with their blend of breathtaking skills, hilarious antics and sweaty muscles.

Remember to breathe, this is brinkmanship at its best. You’ll feel the heat, see the sweat and won’t believe your eyes.

Part of Wonderland Festival 2018.
