Over The Back Fence

A suburban circus adventure

Over 100 people have attended this class


Over the Back Fence is a suburban circus adventure. 

We’ve just made our new home at a studio in Morningside, and we are off to meet the neighbours!

Join your MCs on a circus bus tour of a range of local sites across the Morningside area, from Vulcana’s home studio, to the community garden, a local brewery, and a laundromat, to witness wonderful, quirky and unexpected circus bites, before returning to Vulcana for a party with live music, performance and visual arts.

Dates & times:

Thursday 22, Friday 23 & Saturday 24 April

Doors open at 6.30pm. Be there by 7pm sharp to board the buses

Expected finish – 10.30pm

The adventure begins at Vulcana Studio, 420 Lytton Rd, Morningside

Saturday night is Auslan interpreted. Please email us at development@vulcana.org.au if you require an interpreter as this must be pre booked. 

Ticket prices:

$35 Unwaged, $55 Full price, $80 Generous Supporter

We know that many people experienced challenges to their income in 2020, so please select that which you can best afford.

Our Generous Supporters will get a free glass of sparkling/soft on arrival back at the studio – plus the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from generously supporting an accessible not-for-profit arts organisation.

Optional add-on: Food!

When we stop at Brewdog Brewery for the show, you can enjoy one of the following meals for just $20. Meals MUST be purchased in advance (we won’t have much time!) Please choose your meal when booking your ticket.

Vulcana’s circus workshop and performance projects engage a broad range of community participants and work in partnership with arts and community organisations to create opportunities for cultural expression and community development. In a safe, playful space we encourage participants to be themselves with joy and push the boundaries of what is achievable as one or in a group.

A fantastic unique theatre experience. Very well organised. Staff couldn't be more helpful and caring, looking out for my friend with some accessibility issues. We loved the performances and we look forward to the next event.

An absolute delight. A creative, emotional and powerful exploration of human movement, emotions and themes. I LOVED it.

Like the Welsh strong-woman that Vulcana is named after they have once again brought a powerful performance. Over the Back fence was such a joy to be involved with...I would have said attend but the truly inclusive environment provided by the people at Vulcana and participatory nature of the event was such a pleasure. They manage to balance professional delivery with playfulness in a magical way. The performers were exceptional and varied and each performance / location draws the audience in to little pockets of different worlds created by each performance. I cannot thank them enough for bringing socially inclusive community events in to reality. Still filled with joy and happiness from the event days after attending.
