WERK IT is an all-new, late-night, high-energy, acrobatic comedy romp. Celebrating spandex, high-vis, vitality, and vigour it received nightly standing ovations in its debut season. Combining never seen before acrobatic feats and jaw dropping skill, this show will be the buzz of town.

It’s the low carb love-child of a tradie, a spin instructor and a cross-fit fiend. WERK IT is a riot of colour and movement - big tricks delivered by an all-star cast with more sass and swagger than a TLC videoclip. And all delivered with a stonking 80’s soundtrack.

Featuring outrageous circus by Australia’s hottest acrobats, including award-winning Vincent van Berkel (Can’t Face), hula hoop sensation Lisa Lottie (Neon), manipulation idol Richard Sullivan (Jugg Life), real-life strong-woman Cassia Jamieson (NICA) alongside fierce-as-hell Malia Walsh (Circus Trick Tease).

This over-the top ensemble will hip-thrust their way into an Aerobics Oz Style fever dream all night long!

This show runs for 60 minutes, with no interval. It is suitable for ages 15+.

Please note: WERK IT's inclusion in the the Hawke's Bay's Arts Festival programme is subject to the Australian Bubble being open.
