Australia's premier circus and street performance festival, Hoopla will roll up to Darling Harbour this Easter long-weekend for three nights and four days of family-friendly entertainment from Friday 29 March to Monday 1 April 2013.

Presented by Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, Hoopla promises something for all ages and boasts three indoor venues that will play host to breath-taking performances from some of the most exciting international and local street theatre and circus acts ever seen in Australia!

World record-breaking sword swallower Aerial Manx will mix it with the likes of internationally-renowned performers from Cirque du Soleil, Legs on the Wall and Circus Oz to deliver visually stunning displays of favourite circus tricks and comedy to-boot.

The ringmaster of all indoor venues, the Big Top, will feature some of the hottest shows in town with a thrilling program of fringe-flavoured performances every day from 12noon - 5.30pm and night shows from 6:30pm - 9.40pm (note: no night shows on Monday 1 April).

For a weird and wonderful experience of no more than half an hour, head to Hoopla’s mini-theatre tent Castello where world-class contortionists, hula-hoopists and acrobats will showcase the endless possibilities of the human body.

Head to the International Street Performers Pitch at Harbourside Amphitheatre from 12noon to 5:00pm to be thoroughly entertained by some of the world’s most acclaimed street performance artists or for an entertaining mix of Australia’s best short and sharp sideshow acts at just 15 minutes each, look no further than the Tiny Top!

Some of Australia’s most exciting circus performers can be found outdoors swinging high in the air at Palm Grove and the CircusWorks Circus Playground will continue the hilarity outdoors to provide the perfect opportunity for little ones to run away with the circus and enjoy the spectacle.
