Description

Bursting onto the scene with passion, emotion and talent, Los Angeles' Short Round Productions presents Filament. Amazing circus skills collide with a story inspired by your favourite 80s teen movies to create 'a welcome change from the formula adhered to by many other circus shows' (AdelaideReview.com.au). This fresh take on acrobatic theatre dives into the trials and tribulations of growing up and discovering who you are, all set to a backdrop of dazzling lights and an infectious soundtrack. 'A cocktail of circus, storytelling and sex appeal... [Filament] isn't your typical circus show' ***** (WeekendNotes.com).

Contrary to other reviews, this show is definitely not free! It's pretty expensive and understandably as they have one of the biggest venues. However, despite getting half price tickets, I still thought it was overpriced. The music is very repetitive and the lighting is so bright at times you can't even watch the performers. The tricks are pretty impressive, but nothing that you won't have seen at another circus show. The story line is very predictable and there is huge 'type-casting' living up to every high school stereotype you've ever known. What really lets this show down is the flow, the transitions are too long and the choreography isn't great at all. All of the cast can dance and do some pretty cool tricks, but the show is too long and the staging is too bare. Having seen Circolumbia in this space last year and the energy that brought, this show was a huge disappointment

Totally brilliant. Superb acrobatics and circus skills with a fresh, modern (millennial?) story. Amazing soundtrack too. I want to see it again already!

Bloody outstanding performance! The talent was immense and I can't believe this was a FREE show!

Quintessential 80s movie Sixteen Candles nails the nature of the High School crush when a character proclaims: ‘That’s why they call them crushes. If they were easy, they’d call ’em something else’. Filament, by Los Angeles’ Short Round Productions, takes inspiration from such classic 80’s teen movies to evoke the...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 8 days ago

Whether it’s because Hollywood has force-fed us with them for decades, or simply because the concerns of teenage life are pretty universal across most of the Western world, we’re all pretty familiar with the iconography of US High School movies. That, arguably, is why it makes a sensible choice of...
