Matt Hughes - Rebound Acrobat - Trampoline
Feature Act available for hire, based in Victoria
Having grown up in Albury / Wodonga, Australia, Matt joined the Flying Fruit Fly Circus and began a career of physical performance. In 1984 he joined Circus Oz, based in Melbourne in their world tour that commenced with the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival. Matt continued to perform with Oz for the next seven years touring everywhere from Sydney to New York and back.
Most notable of Matt’s acts is the Trampoline Diving Board Comedy routine which has been in great demand over the years. In 1997 Matt was invited to Edinburgh to perform for the Commonwealth Heads of Governments Meeting (CHOGM) which was attended by the 50 Commonwealth Heads of State including HRH Prince Charles.
Matt was delighted to accept a return invitation from HRH Prince Charles to perform the trampoline act at Prince Charles’ 50th Birthday Concert held at the Lyceum Theatre in London. Matt continues to perform the act internationally and throughout Australia enjoying the thrill of live performance.
The Trampoline act is free standing and can be performed in any room with a ceiling height of four metres or more. The act can be performed in many different characters and can be customised to suit the particular audience.
