Triton Tunis-Mitchell (base)

Triton has also studied physiotherapy and now splits his time between his inner city sports and dance injuries clinic, performance, and teaching of acrobatics at a variety of centres around Adelaide.
Show options include:
“2 Strong Men” (Hand-Balancing Act; 6 mins)
An amazing display of strength, balance and dynamic circus stunts. These two experienced artists flow from one seemingly impossible balance to the next. In this piece Hand2Hand demonstrate the amazing capabilities of the human body. Whether balancing on one arm or flipping over each other, these acrobats share a laugh with each other and the audience. A surprise change of music presents a distraction for these characters as they build towards their spectacular finale. Teamwork, trust and confidence are essential.
“Throwing Things” (Acrobatic Juggling Act; 8 mins)
Throwing Things is a fun and innovative blend of acrobatics and club juggling. Steals, passes and dynamic stunts are sewn together with clever choreography and sharp wit. These characters will tussle for your attention and come out of the fray with an exciting new visual spectacle. Precision, timing and teamwork are features of this captivating piece.
‘Trust Workshop’ (15-60 minute options)
Today’s working environment requires the integration of varied skills from many team members. In this workshop, simple and fun exercises are clearly relayed by expert circus and education trainers. Participants work in partners, small groups and all together to create balances and solve creative puzzles using only their body. This workshop is sure to build trust and cohesion in any team.
