Circus and Physical Theatre / Comedy
Scaled wannabe mullum copy
WINNERS of the SA Touring Award, Adelaide this is your show!!!

'Can't Face' is punchy, high skilled, fast paced, funny as hell and all kinds of mischief. Circus, comedy and melodies all dressed up in sequins and smut.

Featuring Malia Walsh a comedy based circus artist (award winning Children are Stinky, Circus Trick Tease). Carol Cates, a darling of UK cabaret with a quick wit and impressive voice she has 5 star reviews from the Scotsman and the BBC. Vincent Van Berkel (Casus, Perhaps Hope), an incredibly skilled circus artist and finally funny as hell Jamie Bretman (Trash Test Dummies).

60min of epic stunts and laughs, broaching unspoken subjects with humor, circus, melodies and a touch of cheek to soften the sucker punch.

Can't face life? Can't face art? What is it you Can't Face?

Season has ended



Gluttony is a vibrant outdoor hub - a festival within a festival at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Full of beautiful tent venues, bars, awesome food vendors, and a relaxed space for sitting and having a glass of wine before a show, Gluttony has gone from strength to strength, growing each year whilst still maintaining an intimate atmosphere for punters and artists alike. We have a prime position on the corner of East Terrace and Rundle Street, across from the Garden and adjoining the Fringe Club. As Gluttony’s directors, we maintain a strong focus on working with our artists to get the best results we can for them. We are interested in long-term, collaborative and healthy relationships with producers and artists so that we can continue to grow great results together for years to come. Gluttony’s popularity is growing annually, and we always invest back into the hub.
