The Hogwallops Ed2016

Invited into the home of the chaotic Hogwallops, we see the troupe perform acrobatics with great precision as they go about their lives. Baking a cake and hanging out laundry never looked so much fun, although if I had climbed on the microwave I don’t think my mother would have appreciated it! My enjoyment of the wonderfully quirky performance was enhanced by the genuine delight of the young children in the audience – I think I must be softening in my old age. The gasps and giggles from tots, plus their utter belief in the display unfolding before them, was brilliant. It’s perfect family entertainment, featuring what will probably be the only aerial acrobatic display with a Zimmer frame you’ll see this August.

Underbelly Circus Hub, until 22 Aug.
