Circus

Railed

Presented by Head First Acrobats in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

From the creators of the smash hit Elixir (winner of Best Circus and physical theatre award at Adelaide Fringe 2018), comes Railed, a western-themed circus spectacular, combining the trademark physical talents, finely chiselled bodies and hilarious comic timing of the Head First Acrobats.

Prepare yourself for when bare chested circus meets bare knuckle bar fights. A racy, heart-stopping display of the finest acrobatics by the most ridiculous storytellers in the circus.

Leave your expectations at home, come to the wrong side of the tracks, and let the Head First Acrobats boys steal your hearts.

Reviews

Keep the kids at home and spice up your night with a ballsy bevy of beefcake. ★★★★★

Glam Adelaide

The sheer eroticism expressed by these boys is astounding. ★★★★

Fest magazine

Railed is upbeat and wholly unironic, lampooning queer culture with silent one-liners spread across a quadrant formed by four men zinged high up in acrobatic manoeuvres.
