Glow show promises close encounter
The Cirquaholics lightup Floriade NightFest from September 24-28.
Floriade is in full bloom but
Canberrans are patiently awaiting their
chance to revel in the magic of the
gardens after dark.
The Cirquaholics Trio will return
with a sparkling performance of
acrobatics, glow balls, hoops and
shimmering circus apparatus for the
fourth consecutive year.
Artistic director Mark Johnson said
the group formed after receiving an
initial invitation to perform by
organisers four years ago.
"Without Floriade NightFest and
having that opportunity we probably
wouldn t have created the act, or at
least the glow section," he said.
Cirquaholics have developed a more
intimate show this year, to launch on
Wednesday, September 24.
Johnson has put his engineering
degree to work customising a wall
adorned with dozens of glowing props
when they re not whirring about and
"People will be a lot closer to the
action," he said.
"This year it s going to have a more
casual street theatre feel, not as much
of a formal or sequential approach you
often see within set routines of a
The display set to a lively electro
soundtrack is designed to match the
enchanted atmosphere created by the
surrounding stretches of vibrant up lit
"The appeal I think is having that
extra level of visual interest in the
show and engaging the audience s
senses and playfulness,"
he said. Johnson said the knack to
creating a "brilliant" performance was
making it look effortless.
"An object that is strobing can look
like it has three or four handles at
times, so you have to rely on your
muscle memory to try and catch it," he

ALBUM: LP1/ ARTIST: FKA TWIGS
Urban sound lulls the listener into trance-like state
Dancer-turned-singer Tahliah Barnett
is causing the right kind of commotion
in music circles. Her debut album LP1
-- as the artist FKA Twigs -- is a sultry
experience with barely-there R&B
meant more for contemplation than
The trick with her particular urban
sound is its ability to cause the listener
to enter a trance-like state and become
immersed in this experimental and all-
Even the sexiness of Lights On
which is about, well, "do(ing) it will
the lights on" has an otherworldly
charm to it and the lustful approach of
the song is combined with a feeling of
unease, anxiousness and insecurity.
Maybe that is why Barnett has been so
quick to point out that Lights On is
actually about trust and not the
horizontal lambada (so to speak).
LP1 can certainly take your breath
away after one hearing if you re in a
patient mood but it is only after
repeated listening that the treasures
flow through. Whether it is the restless
electronics underpinning each song,
the quirky beats pulsating through or
the peculiar digital effects peppering
each tune to give it a unique feel you
are at least a million miles away from
the radio fodder of the commercial
glass and light
