Kaput tours Upper Hunter

Kaput, the multi-award winning family show has melted hearts of all ages around the world with its glorious brand of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness. Be swept up in the mayhem that is the larger-than-life ‘elegant buffoon’ Tom Flanagan, as one man’s life is flipped upside down by the lonely dust covered world that surrounds him. This lonely Mr Fixit takes one step forward and two steps back in a highly skilled, hilariously funny and beautifully poignant bit of madness.

Featured Artist

Tom Flanagan 

Tom Flanagan devised and performs Kaput, the show that is coming to Merriwa, Denman, Scone and Murrurundi.

"Growing up in the Flying Fruit Fly Circus in Albury/Wodonga, then moving to Spaghetti Circus in Mullumbimby and spending time on his father’s Mallanganee property, Tom has always felt an affinity with regional Australia. Even when he is performing around the globe his favourite place to return to is regional NSW. His time in Circus Oz produced one of his favourite memories: touring to regional communities, especially those ravaged by bushfires, teaching circus skills to children in the community and performing to them, bringing energy, hope and laughter to people who have had perhaps the hardest time in their lives."
