3 Times - the most popular corporate trio routine. This new age act, incorporates adagio and hand-balancing to showcase the astounding, almost gravity defying shapes and images that will leave the audience questions, what is really possible
Chairs - Performed as a Solo, Duo, or Trio this act incorporates adagio, hand balancing and chair stacks to create imagery that has to be seen to be believed.
Muscle Beach - Muscle Beach is a comedy style routine; swimmers, bathing caps and lot’s of flamboyant muscle poses. Watch the character try to 1 up each other for the audiences attention.
R-Bar - ThisSideUp are the only people in Australia to perform the Russian Bar, a highflying spectacle 3-person act. Performed with a 1950’s spin; high pants, suspenders, and hats the performers playfully interact and manipulate this unique piece of equipment. Simply three pole vaulting strapped together, 10 cm thick, 5 m long, with padding in the middle and on the ends. The full potential of the bar is discovered as the bases gracefully throw the flyer up to 7m in the air to land balanced perfectly on the bar. This act is sure to amaze any audience as they watch the trio move in total unison, as a well old machine.
"Bodies soar, tumble and splash across the floor in sync, always bouncing back with another surprise tucked up their sleeves." Buzz Cuts 2007
