Prehysterical Circus: Adelaide Fringe 2024

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️   5 Stars for silly slapstick and sensational acrobatics

Review by Claire Davill

Prehistoric cave persons Rock, Urg and Ow are bumbling, simple-minded folk, but when faced with a challenge, their acrobatic skills are second to none.

From the start of the show with the three wandering through the audience and eliciting giggles out of every child in attendance, to the hyped-up “I like to move it move it” finale, the show is fast paced, spectacular, and fun for children and adults.

The challenges of crossing a river, finding food and avoiding dangerous animals (including electric eels!) result in a non-stop succession of slapstick routines and impressive acrobatics. You’ll see hula hooping, trapeze work and handstand canes in addition to tumbling. 

The humour is basic (as is the language of the cave people), the props are silly, and the result is a show filled with giggles, shouts and awe from the kids in the audience. The premise of the show is simple, but the acrobatic skills are anything but. This is a perfect acrobatic show for young children, and older kids and adults will also enjoy every minute.

Prehysterical Circus is performing until Sunday 17 March 2024 in The Vault at Fool’s Paradise.
