YOU can’t have a cel­e­bra­tion of street art with­out a cir­cus act; just ask Fre­man­tle-based Cir­cusWA, which has been per­form­ing in the lo­cal Street Arts Fes­ti­val since 2004.

Putting on not one, but two shows for the fes­ti­val, the up-and-com­ing cir­cus per­form­ers in Slid­erz – in­clud­ing Tim Simp­son, of Vic­to­ria Park – will be look­ing to wow the crowds with their flips, tricks and quirk­i­ness.

Cir­cusWA’s Rachel Col­lier said au­di­ence mem­bers could ex­pect a lot of fun from the group’s per­for­mance.

“The group love per­form­ing and we hope that shines through,” she said.

“There will be live mu­sic aerial

dis­plays, ac­ro­bat­ics and a unicy

cle. “It is a great event for the school and stu­dents to be in­volved in, they get to per­form along­side the best per

for­m­ers in the world, so they love

it. “It is such a fab­u­lous fes­ti­val and it’s fab­u­lous to work on a show for such a great

event.” Cir­cusWA will per­form at 1pm and 3pm on April 5 on the Walyalup Pitch on the in­ter­sec­tion of South Ter

race and Col­lie Street. The Fre­man­tle Street Arts Fes­ti­val

runs from April 4 to 6. Visit www.fre­ for
