Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 08 January - 18 January 2015

Cirque Alfonse | Canada | Australian ExclusivE

There’ll be whip-crackin’, wood-chuckin’, log-balancin’ and axe-jugglin’ galore – with live banjo-pickin’ and bluegrass-playin’ thrown in for good measure as Quebec’s Cirque Alfonse brings the exuberant Timber! to Australia for the whole family to enjoy.

Timber! combines circus with theatre, physical comedy, live traditional music, folklore and the tools of the lumberjack trade. Expect the circus skills displayed by three generations of this family of circus-performers, including the 67-year-old grandad, to be as sharp as the saw blades.

Presented by Sydney Festival 2015
