Trash Test Dummies

Winners of the Best Children’s Presentation at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016 and 2015,runners up for Children’s Choice Award 2016 and Best Kid's Show nomination at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe, the Trash Test Dummies are as full of laughs as their bins are full of surprises.

Returning from a sell out season at the Edinburgh Fringe with rave reviews, this award-winning, sidesplitting slapstick comedy routine takes the household wheelie bin to new heights, and delivers a dump-truck full of hilarity! 

Nominees of the 2015 Perth FRINGE WORLD Circus Award and winners of the Gasworks Circus Showdown 2014, the Trash Test Dummies is a family friendly, circus comedy show like no other. 

Leigh Rhodes, Thomas McDonald and Amy Nightingale-Olsen are highly skilled circus performers that can trash talk with the best of them. These dexterous dummies take the audience on a journey into their playful imagination, where they invite them to take a fresh look at the humble household wheelie bin.
