SACC’s Fringe Show ‘Ropeable’ | News

SA Circus Centre’s Youth Troupe will perform their new work ‘Ropeable’ during the 2022 Adelaide Fringe at The Peacock at Gluttony, Rymill Park on February 20 & 27 and March 6. This is a great opportunity to see some of South Australia’s brilliant young acrobats, who have trained at the leading circus facility for young performers, demonstrate their extraordinary skills and talents.

In Ropeable, the SACC group explores the premise of how we are stronger as a whole, the sum of our parts. We enter this world alone, we spend our lives building friendships, forging relationships, joining communities and forming bonds. Each of these bands has a different dynamic, moments of tension and relaxation. Relationships change, bonds break, bonds are strengthened.

We see that as a group we can achieve more by pulling in the same direction. We can elevate an individual, support a cause, build a bridge to a better place. But what is the value of each part? Ultimately, when it’s all over, we’ll leave this world alone.

The South Australian Circus Center Performance Troupe is part of SACC’s Artist Development Program and is led by Artistic Director Joshua Hoare, Associate Director Meredith Kitchen and Artist Development Coordinator Jonathan Dragt. In addition to producing high-quality public productions, more than 70 students per week train and are supervised by the specialized trainers in this elite program.

Ropeable was created by Adelaide’s newest generation of acrobats, with performers using their unique skills to produce the work, with Lucas Weston as assistant director and the show’s soundtrack, an original composition by Phoenix Pastro. The costumes were designed by Sarah Norton, Juliet Macleod, Rhiannon Copas and Adi Hardy.

SACC’s Artistic Director Joshua Hoare:

These young artists create something very special, incredible physicality, inspiring group work, music, visual poetry. They are part of a wave of new circus that is taking over the world and we Australians are at the front of the pack. Be sure to come see Ropeable and bring the whole family

SACC’s Youth Troupe was an Adelaide Fringe Weekly Award winner for their 2021 show Breathe.
