Presented by the City of Stonnington as part of the Melbourne International Fringe Festival, the Prahran Square Circus and Street Arts Spectacular is on Saturday October 7 and Sunday October 8 from 11am to 5pm each day.

Hosted by the incomparable Aurora Kurth, Prahran Square will transform into a hub of excitement and wonder, featuring jaw-dropping performances that will leave you breathless:

  • Witness Circus Firemen Angus and Matilda's high-energy acrobatics, red-hot juggling, and searing Australian comedy;

  • Watch ground breaking performer, Joel Salom and Erik, his charismatic robot dog, an Australia’s Got Talent winner;
  • Be charmed by Reuben DotDotDot, The Man, The Myth, The Legend, who will delight you with his blend of smooth sippin' comedy and acrobatic finesse;
  • See Dr Hubble, Australia's favourite bubble man, create miracles with simple soap bubbles; and
  • Join Abso-LUTH-ly on a zany circus adventure as she bounces and spins her way through hair-raising stunts.

Each performance lasts about 45 minutes, with a new show each hour and charismatic host Aurora adding to the joy between shows.
