KELLYVILLE'S Circaholics Anonymous will be one of the drawcards at the Sydney Fringe Festival this month.
The group perform acts, including acting, dancing, martial arts, juggling, pyrotechnics as well as new tricks including fire shoes and fire nun-chucks.
The eight-person group formed in 2009 and performed at the Catapult Festival in Bathurst.
Founder Calvin Grant, 23, said it was a chance to do something different.
"We do what the other groups don't," he said.
"Every show is unique and different."
Grant told the News he got the idea of a fire circus when he attended a circus festival while at high school.
"I saw a teacher doing fire twirling and I got into it from there," he said.
Grant said the acts are all self-taught and they have managed to avoid any major accidents.
He hopes to expand the group.
"I am hoping to perform full-time in the future and to start with tours around NSW," he said.
The Sydney Fringe Festival runs from September 6-29 with different performances at various venues in the Newtown, Marrickville and Enmore area.
■ Circaholics Anonymous will perform on September 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28 in The Forum, Norton Street, Leichhardt.
