Sydney Festival presents

Werk It

12 - 22 Jan 2023

Bedecked in the finest spandex the 90s has to offer, an all-star cast of circus rogues flip, dip and hip thrust to a soundtrack of 90s bangers, in an acrobatic romp so funny you just might wee. Introducing Werk It, a bombastic, gym-tastic fusion of fun times with more sass than Alicia Silverstone in Clueless.

The late-night love-child of circus, comedy and cabaret, Werk It is stacked with big tricks and big characters. Hula hooper Lisa Lottie is so famous she has a TED talk. Strongwoman Cassie Jamieson can balance a man on her head, if he’s lucky. Award-winning circus artist Vincent Van Berkel once lost a finger but it’s cool, he found it again. Ask fierce as hell director Malia Walsh about that time she performed for Mick Jagger.

This highly skilled, over-the-top ensemble will suck you into their Oz Style fever dream and spit you out sweaty. Strap in folks. It is, what we call in the biz, a riot.
