ALDO FOR KEARSNEY (article first published : 2004-08-6)

Local entertainer Aldo Brincat has been appointed Artist-in-Residence at Kearsney College in Botha’s Hill. He will direct next week’s annual drama production at the school - The Extreme Sports Circus, inspired by the internationally acclaimed Cirque du Soleil.

In his new position, Aldo Brincat will conduct a range of workshops for boys at Kearsney as part of the school’s vision to instil a lifelong appreciation of the arts in pupils. All his future productions will also premier at the school.

"Love them or hate them, Cirque du Soleil are definitely the future of live performance,” says Aldo. “In our production we hope to present each moment for what it is - big or small. We will attempt to turn a clown with a single hoop into a moment of whimsy!"

Acts include gravity-defying gymnastic contortions, breakdancing routines, memorable moves involving BMXs, skateboards and motorbikes, together with clowns causing chaos and mayhem. Fire-eaters and stilt walkers will welcome patrons entering the venue.

The Extreme Sports Circus will run from August 11 to 13. A number of high-powered acts will be interspersed with narration and solo music items. The evening will take the form of supper theatre for the whole family and patrons are encouraged to take picnic baskets.

Bookings through Rose on 031 765 9659 between 09h00 and 13h00. Tickets R30 (R15 children).
