More than just music at the Global Carnival
IN keeping with carnival traditions this year's Bellingen Global Carnival is presenting much more than music.
Adding to the good vibes will be circus performers, trapeze artists, jugglers, jokers and a Children's Festival.
Lucky Lou Lou (Lou Harwood) has stunned audiences in the past with such feats as leaping out of cakes and onto a trapeze, clambering artistically over scaffolding, doing her act suspended from a crane and creating an edible show. With a background in dance and performance and a love of physical theatre, Lou added circus skills to her repertoire.
"I learnt tumbling from this amazing 80-year-old Hungarian circus performer, Eugene Balla," Lou said.
She will be seen over the weekend performing her suspended rope tricks high above the crowds.
Captain Quirk (Simon Walsh) became hooked on juggling 12 years ago and describes it as a happy divergence in his life.
"It's like surfing - you're on the edge and it's exciting without the danger," Simon said.
"It loosens the mind and gets both sides of your brain working - your peripheral vision improves."
His 'Captain Quirk Show' incorporates his own music with his playful juggling skills.
