Circus available for hire, based in South Australia
Mr Spin emerged onto the streets in 1994 performing his own unique style of mime show. The Mr. Spin Show has since developed to an impressive, high energy street/circus show and has been a favourite of audiences in festivals and public arenas around Australia and in Europe. With a background in dance and inspired by Vaudeville greats Enrico Rastelli, Francis Brunn and Bobby May, Mr. Spin has focused on developing high level skills, fluid movement and his own quirky style of comedy. Nigel D. (alias mr. Spin) can be seen under other guises performing internationally with groups Buzz and Slack Taxi, and Australia's Lunar Circus. The Mr. Spin show The show is a highly-skilled, comic vaudevillian style street/circus act. Mr Spin is a loveable, charismatic character who is a favourite with all audiences. He performs a beautiful three-ball juggle, diabolo, Chinese devil-sticking with base bats, one ball manipulation and an eight ball juggle, mixed with mad capped antics and a incredible sense of fun, not to mention a few hat tricks thrown in! This all culminates into him jumping on to a seven foot unicycle where he juggles three baseball bats while balancing a glass of water on his head! The Mr. Spin show can be adapted for either the stage or the street and depending on your requirements the show can run from 20 to 45 minutes.
'...the legendary "mr Spin" from Adelaide... draws us in to his show, where in 20 minutes of high octane silliness, we can lose sight of the pure skill and hard work behind say, the 2 full-metal baseball bats, spinning like propellor devilsticks on one hand stick each."
