Buskers Pitch performance 10:45am and 2.30pm

Vladimir and Binka are circus artists rumoured to have Slavic roots. Their circus show is famous for acrobatic displays of strength and flexibility with flamboyant flair, but travelling has meant leaving behind performing animals who are integral to their show.  With their circus incomplete they will resort to other means to ensure the show goes on!

Fresh from the World Buskers Festival in Christchurch, this is a new collaboration between two of NZ’s top circus artists, Lyttelton-based Guinness world record holding acrobats, Australian contortionist Skye Broberg and Swiss clown Pascal Ackerman.

It’s very exciting to be able to include this at the Newtown Festival.
