Australia’s Premier Roving Entertainment Company

What do we do?

Icarus is Australia’s premier roving stilt walking company. Many of our acts are on bouncing stilts, some are on pole stilts, some on the ground. They are always interactive, comic and fun. We are about Entertainment!

How do we do it?

We make our own original costumes and acts in our Carlton (Sydney) studio and fill them with the best professional, interactive performers.

Where do we do it?

Icarus acts work at events and festivals. We are Sydney based but work all over the country and all around the world. Wherever entertainment is needed you will find us!


Didjerigor (Thank-you) for being part of our NAIDOC Family Day, it was a pleasure as the Eldeers didn’t want anything but you guys. So didjerigor again from our team and our community Elders

“I just wanted to say a huge THANKS again to you and Jesse for your great work as Bouncers at the Fringe Awards. It was fantastic to have you there, especially after your big weekend in Port Augusta! Added some great whimsy and fun silliness to the event. Awesome stuff.”

Melanie Burge – Adelaide Fringe

“thank you once again for making our parade such a great one”

Sue Porrett – Aerial Angels

“Icarus have guest-starred at a number of WOMADelaides, with ROO’d, Giant Leap, the Molotov Brothers, Bouncers and the Moooody Cows – in fact many of these creations have made their debut at the festival. We are always thrilled to have Icarus on board – they inject colour, humour and energy into the site, create a commotion wherever they go and are a delight to deal with.”

Annette Tripodi – Arts Projects

“Icarus always give our Glastonbury Festival audiences a great deal of fun, whether in their kangaroos role or as the stunning new lifeguards.” Arabella Churchill – Glastonbury Festival
