An entrancing solo show by one of New Zealand’s most talented cirque creators.

Mr Jeff, born in Palmerston North, learned his art in a big top circus in New Zealand. He has gone on to travel the world, from
Glastonbury Big Top (UK), Linz Pflasterspektakel (Austria) to BizBash (LOS ANGELES). Based in Australia since last Summer, Mr Jeff has made a name for himself as one of Melbourne’s most talented new cirque creators and is now touring his solo show in New Zealand!

With his playfully perplexing fusion of circus and mime, our debonair object-manipulator takes the audience on a mischievous and memorable journey of the mind. Dazzling the senses with colour, sound and optical illusion, Mr Jeff explores endearing
new forms of circus while pushing at the boundaries of imagination. 

Featuring floating crystal balls, mini-hoops, a six-foot balloon, a flying jacket and a whole lot of hats, this whimsical shebang is a show for any age and all states of mind.  Prepare to be delighted, amused and utterly bamboozled as Mr Jeff’s highly-visual brand of storytelling and play unfolds before your eyes.

“The show that I have created came out of a long-standing dream to have my own personal piece of work that would be at an international standard of circus arts. I have traveled the world for 5 years touring duo shows, watching and working with amazing artists and collecting
spectacular ideas to dazzle my audience. I am really excited to bring this show home!”
