Circus tricks and physical creative expression are major features of a series of workshops kicking off in the Wimmera. 

Arapiles Community Theatre Natimuk will use a $10,000 VicHealth grant to offer a series of circus workshops for young people in the town.

Wobbly Spoon performers No Mi and Dawa Che will lead the program ‘A Splash of Circus’ starting tomorrow at Soldiers Memorial Hall. 

Theatre general co-manager Hannah French said the workshops expanded on a program that concluded in March 2021. 

“That program was a really lovely opportunity for people to come together after the craziness that was 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said. 

“There was such positive feedback we thought it would be lovely to do it again.” The National Institute of Circus Arts-trained performers moved to Natimuk after spending four years in China. 

Ms French said the pair was well-known for amazing physical performances. 

“No Mi is a whizz at hula-hooping and Dawa is an amazing juggler,” she said. 

Wobbly Spoon will offer the workshop until late October and will develop a performance for the Nati Frinj Biennale. 

Ms French said there were still places available for people aged eight to 18 to join the program.
