ON STAGE | DUO HOOPS
A 55 minute show suitable for all ages. A fun, family-friendly show that can be played in theatres, auditoriums and school gymnasiums.
Duo Hoops was created in 2002, shortly after David and Becky met in Montreal, Canada. During their very first show together, they realized that they had a special chemistry on stage. Their initial productions were performed in outdoor venues and street-theatre festivals, and in recent years they have also created an indoor theatre version. All their work can be performed in both English and French. Over the years, Duo Hoops has been invited to perform in Canada, Taiwan, China, Cambodia, New Zealand, Australia and Mexico, to name a few!
David and Becky strive to create highly entertaining, surprising and comical shows for audiences of all ages. While all of their productions showcase the physical prowess of circus; their main interest is in developing the element of comedy, clowning and the delightful conflict between their characters.
They are constantly experimenting with new and innovative ways to crack up their audiences, and their complementary and characters - on stage and in life - are the perfect antidote to each other!
This show is a non-stop, action packed circus extravaganza. Despite their glaring personality conflict, David and Becky come together to deliver a highly impressive yet completely ridiculous circus show. David admires Becky like his big sister, he really wants to impress her but often ends up stuffing it up. Becky is constantly amazed that she has to perform with this guy who can’t do anything right. The combination of these two characters are the perfect antidote for each other. Juggling, hula hoops, comedy, and some magical surprises!
