Icarus presents two roving performances throughout Festival 2018.
Giant Bouncing Kangaroos. Roo'd is an act by Icarus Productions....a mob of kangaroos on amazing bouncing stilts. Jumping up to a metre off the ground and 2 metres in a bound, they are a phenomenal sight. Their characters are a crossover of outback macho and inner city punk savy - always Roo'd but never offensive.
A favourite at festivals around the world.
Since the act was first conceived and made in 2002, Roo’d has appeared at festivals and events around Australia and the world. So far Roo’d has appeared in around 35 countries, making it one of Australia's most successful independent creative exports. Voted second best act at the 2002 Glastonbury Festival on BBC Radio 1 Listeners Poll.
Sharks beware! These bronzed hero's of surf and sand are on patrol and eager to prove they're ready to rescue. Marvel at their mouth to mouth! Be dazzled by their daring drills! Heroic? Certainly.
Posers? Definetely. You'll need CPR after these moustached musclemen have bared their biceps while diverting danger. Swim outside the flags at your own peril.
Keep an eye out for these acts across the coast.
Festival 2018 has more than 50 roving street performers that will surprise and entertain as you journey to and from selected sporting venues.
Discover awe-inspiring life-sized puppets, floating jellyfish, dancing zebras, an all-girl hip hop crew, drummers, acrobats and more.
