360 ALLSTARS @ The Flamingo At Gluttony, Adelaide 11/3/2022

At the intersection of extraordinary physicality and live music is the 360 ALLSTARS. A synthesis of remarkable street culture and creativity.

Adelaide Fringe favourites the 360 ALLSTARS return in 2022 to dazzle crowds of all ages. Their high NRG performance combines live music and impressive feats featuring breakdancing, basketballs, a BMX bike and a Roue Cyr wheel, each capturing the theme of rotation.

Mister Monk, a freestyle rapper, is the MC for the night. He keeps the wheels turning on the performance and ensures the parts are linked to the whole.

First up is Argentinian Gonzalo, BMX Flatlanding champion. He delivers a dizzying, near-flawless performance that will have you wanting to dust off your own bike to go for a ride. Drummer Michael Marino then supports Mister Monk through a hip hop freestyle that captures the art of rhyme. Belgium’s Bavo leaves the crowd agape. His exciting display of not one, not two, not three, not four, but five (!) basketballs will leave even the Harlem Globetrotters impressed. Ezra Miska’s elegant Roue Cyr performance is captivating. While a drum solo by Marino rounds out the ‘talent show’ component of the performance.

Group performances form the second part of the show and introduce the breakdancing talents of b-boy Sette. There is humour with the Roue Cyr music portal skit and dancing that highlights Sette’s undeniable capabilities and the others’…well, not so much.

With video projections across three screens complementing the stage actions, 360 ALLSTARS is a visual and aural feast of the senses. The hyper urban circus is a burst of excitement and happiness for all involved. It is captivating from start to finish.
