These performers are exceptional stilt performers rather than just stilt walkers - they are highly character driven and interact beautifully with the general public or your guests. These Stilt Performers; whilst strutting, looping and dancing through the crowd, stimulate the imagination, inspire joy and offer an engaging, playful and interactive experience for audiences of various sizes.
Manoeuvre is a roving stilt performance company providing stilt acts to festivals, nightclubs and corporate events throughout Australia and overseas.
Stilt Character Repertoire:
Strange creatures, stalking and creeping on their long insect like legs. Beautiful and intriguing, they communicate with a haunting language of gaunt postures, spindly shapes and piercing gazes.
Vivaciously colourful and over the top, Blume is described as a cross dress between Peter Alan and Jeannie Little with a dash of Mardi Gras to boot. Blume leaves audiences cheering for more. Gorgeous, Feminine & Fantastical. Cheeky, Flirtatious & Elegant. Colourful & Demure, Blume is a must for any Night Club. Available as a roaming visual or dance routines on stilts.
Gracefully arising above the ground, the public looks astonished when this Black & Red, long leggeded creature flutters along, seducing and persuading its audience with delight. As this majestic creature strides through the crowd using its unusal shapped head to look serenely around all are left in cheer admiration and wonder. ENTE represents the dark side in all of us.
Jack and Jack:
Energetic and colourful. Out for a good time. In sync ……. Or out of sync, take a look, come and play. Jack & Jack are definitely fun filled and dynamic. You can take them anywhere.
These girls are not just a pretty sight.
Take a breath......reach deep into the mouth of their proffered handbag, choose a card and read your ‘thought for the day’!
Under those demure veiled faces lies a mischievous sense of humour. A cheekiness that is reflected in Lip Service’s costuming, movement and style, as well as in their interactions with their audience.

Effervescent, exquisite, Ma’amselle Clair steps lightly with beauty and grace. Enveloped in her cloud of bubblesMa’amselle Claire leaves a trail of enraptured, smiling faces. Watch the bubbles burst their surprises in the sunshine or notice the magic of floating balls in the half light of evening.
Mr Moody ( soon to be available - The Moody Family)
Having just arrived to earth from another planet, Mr Moody walks on by in original slow motion and it is sure that he still has a long journey ahead. His approach is friendly and prudent, but he surely is curious. Suddenly he freezes to a hault, and tracking his fancy he procedes in a stunning slow motion whilst changing to extreme movement. At times audiences will discover that in a mysterious way, the faceless Mr Moody is curiously watching them - attempting to understand how they function. Visually Stunning and Beautifully Naïve.

"On behalf of the committee organising the 2011 Tara Festival of Culture, we would like to congratulate Manoeuvre Stilt Walkers on their fabulous contribution to our event. They interacted so well with the crowd and also with the other entertainers.Their frequent costume changes and characterisation was a hit with all ages. Even the teenagers thought they were cool(not easy to get that audience). We would certainly look at having them back in the future.
Kerri Wood and Mary Youngberry"
