Street Pole show

Reuben DotDotDot defies gravity and death with acrobatic stunts and balances you need to see to believe. The show that has it all – humour; handstands; and holding on for dear life! With a spinning one-handed balance 17 feet up in the air, concrete never looked so hard… The show lasts 40 minutes and contains Chinese pole, handbalancing, manipulation and crowd interaction. The show can be either in English or silent for non-English speaking audiences.

On Casual Friday

Drinking scotch, smoking cigarettes (albeit fake ones), playing with hats, and doing all this while upside down, what else would he do on a day off? A silent show set to smooth sounds that can be a single 5-minute act, 2 five-minute sets, or a full-length street-style show.

Well Balanced

New show for 2019! Pushing the limits beyond upside down, Reuben Dot Dot Dot debuts his new, one of a kind show for the 2019 season. An acrobatic handstand stunt show with style. Bringing you more skills, thrills and overkill... Putting a hat on with his feet, sipping a drink or two while balancing precariously, perched on one hand high in the air, this show is spectacular, unforgettable, inverted, and above all: WELL BALANCED!

Metamorphosis

'Metamorphosis' is a 6 minute hand balance act, set to a piano piece by Phillip Glass, with the same name. Loosely based on Kafka's piece of the same name, this act is a slow, methodical, strong and stunning exploration of entrapment, by body and environment, through movement and handbalancing, creating beautiful shapes and positions on a set of 4 specially made canes.

Leap

Reuben DotDotDot and Charmaine Childs (aka Betty Brawn, Strong Lady) come together in a leap of faith, to create the show they had imagined to be possible against all the odds. Leap is an acrobatic show with the surprising twist of having a female base and a male flyer and is available as either a street theatre show or a series of stage acts.

"Cirque du Soleil star Reuben Kuan presents a charismatic and well constructed routine, graduating from skilful and seemingly effortless ice cube and hat tricks to world class displays of strength and balance. Silent throughout but instantly charming, he cheekily demands repeat drink refills from a member of the audience as he holds increasingly taxing positions. Lili remarks that it’s a privilege to secure him for the evening, and it certainly feels like one."Review - Another F*cking Variety Show (London Wonderground 2014)
 
"Reuben is a double-jointed gymnast, who can perch on what appears to be an upturned ashtray on one arm, whilst contorting his body into gymnastic feats of strength. It’s actually awesome. His power and body beautiful are truly bewitching. He majestically performs along to that weird atmospheric music you only ever hear in spas. There is genuine envy in the room. He earns the applause and cheers he is given."Fringe Review - Edinburgh Fringe 2010, Vive Le Cabaret
 
"Reuben Kuan, formerly of Cirque Du Soleil, drew audible gasps from the crowd with an effortless approach to his stunning acrobatics. Not only did his flexibility and strength seem to defy physiology and gravity, he completed a full act while puffing on a smoke and drinking scotch – far more successfully than most blokes who attempt tricks while drinking (hold my beer…)."Reviewed - Andrew Montesi 'Rip it up, March 7, 2016, Showtime Adelaide Fringe
