Where Melbourne - - Where Now What’s On -

Aus­tralia’s next gen­er­a­tion of cir­cus ta­lent is on show in the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Cir­cus Arts (NICA) ensem­ble “Please Hold”. The per­for­mance show­cases NICA’S fi­nal year cir­cus artists all who have high-level cir­cus skills. Per­form­ers tra­verse a maze of ropes, straps and poles test­ing their stamina and agility to the limit. “Please Hold” ex­am­ines the so­cial medi­ums that bind and iso­late—from the in­va­sive qual­i­ties of so­cial me­dia, to the rigid ex­pec­ta­tions of so­cial eti­quette— look­ing deeper into how com­mu­nity rules are cre­ated and chal­lenged and what hap­pens when we don’t mea­sure up to ex­pec­ta­tions.
