“You were the highlight of the night, outstanding!”
- special events coordinator, the Hilton Melbourne.
“Hazel Bock, presents a rapid-fire nonsense language lecture while casually juggling poles and tables with her feet. It is both funny and breathtaking and she has a terrific sense of timing.”
- Hillary Crampton THE AGE 2003
Antipod, the Ancient Chinese Art of Foot Juggling
Hazel demonstrates her talent for balancing flipping and spinning large objects with her feet including: a Table, Pipe and Seven Hula-hoops all this while narrating the action in comic alien gibberish. Incorporating her own unmistakable clown style to create an unusual and visual act.
Dream life, solo Juggling
Combining her unique style and her unusual flexibility in to a flowing and highly skilled routine including balls rings and clubs. Juggling up to seven objects at once she is one of the best female jugglers in Australia.
Matilda, Roving Clown.
Matilda is the spirit of nonsense. In this act Hazel frees the natural clown within using characterization which is subtle and non-threatening especially to little people. Including skills such as juggling, mime, magic and stilts to create a roving character that will bring colour and fun to any setting.
