About Us

Icarus Productions is a Sydney based street theatre company that specialises in roving stilt walking acts. Formed in 1993 as Icarus Performance Troupe by a group of creative friends, Icarus is now run and owned solely by founding member and Creative Director, Paul Jones. Icarus has always created it’s own works and continues to do so today, many of these have become iconic in the events and festivals world, such as the Roo’d Kangaroos and Beach Patrol Lifesavers.


In recent years we have also entered into act sharing arrangements with Melbourne based Stilt Walkers Australia to bring to Sydney the Candy Canes and Jolly Giant acts (formally known as Fat Brothers) and with Melbourne/ Glasgow based Surreal McCoy for the Seagulls.


Icarus is now 25 years old and in that time has established itself as Australia’s premier roving entertainment company. Icarus acts have performed in 40 countries around the world, making it one of Australia’s most successful independent creative exports.
