The Defiant

Circus • Acrobatics
Victoria • SA Premiere

Joyful and emotive, The Defiant is a celebration of rebellion and fierceness told through an explosion of acrobatic feats and phenomenal live music. Bringing together world class athletes and acrobats, The Defiant presents a dystopian circus that is electrifying, exciting and joyful. The Defiant explores force, energy and power through bold contemporary circus and a live rock soundtrack. 

This brand new show by the director of Rouge and Rebel will be performing its South Australian premiere at the Peacock in Gluttony.

Please note: The performances from 18th February to 13th March has changed times from 8.15pm to 7.00pm since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.
