Circa NICA
Hoopa Doopla!

In 2013, two CircaNICA artists secured a 6 month contract in China with a circus themed children’s TV series called ‘Hoopla Doopla!’. Created by Melinda Wearne and produced by Beyond Screen Productions, the TV series was a collaboration between ABC and China TV and featured a cast of three Chinese and three Australian circus performers.

The performers were selected after a lengthy casting process which lasted nearly two years. Daniel Gorski played the role of the clown ‘Jango’ and 2012 NICA graduate Simon Wright was lucky enough to secure the role of the playful young acrobatic postman ‘Zap.’ The series screened on ABC throughout 2014 and 2015.

In the 2015 school holidays, the three Australian performers performed live as ‘Hoopla Doopla!’, touring nationally with ‘Giggle & Hoot and Friends.’ The artists performed alongside cast from the award-winning ABC4Kids preschool program Giggle & Hoot as well as the Bananas in Pyjamas!
