Hailing from Western Australia, sideshow act Circus Carnis (basic Latin for 'Meat Show'), have been delighting and disgusting audiences since our not-so-immaculate conception in 2004. Circus Carnis performances include a themed storyline with piercing, suspension, and all manner of spectacle!

We are regular performers on Australia's cabaret circuit, having performed at many of Western Australia's ARTrage productions, Perth & Adelaide Fringe Festival seasons since 2009, Perth Fetish ball since 2004 and various other shows around the country.
We have our sights firmly set on spreading our wings in the USA, UK, Europe and Japan, so get in touch if you'd like a little freakshow fun at your event. 


"You guys were amazing!! I was super nervous that I would faint, but I'm so glad I stayed conscious for the whole show!" - Alice, Fringeworld audience member, via Facebook

"Gotta say, I was impressed by the show. My group of five lined up 30mins early to get front row seats.  My girlfriend was worried, but we both left feeling energised and wanting to see more. I was so on edge. Keep up the amazing work."   - Jason, Fringeworld audience member, via Facebook

“I’ve seen too many penises in my time, I don’t need to see this.”  - Befuddled Fringeworld audience member

"The consummate stars of the show, as always, are those phenomenally twisted, freaks of hedonistic, artistically stylised perversion, Circus Carnis. I won’t ruin it, but there’s blood – enough to induce their lauded fainter in the audience. They are nothing short of dark-soul-food. A delicious, delectable feast of blood, gore and glamour that will make you marvel and leave you speechless." - Natalie Giles, Xpress Magazine

"I nearly vomited. That's how good it was! I'll eat cake from his crotch every chance I get!" - Scotty the Blue Bunny, La Soiree.

"All I have learned from this experience is that I do not know enough about male genitalia...WHERE DO THE BALLS GO?” 
Then later: "I stand by this review. EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS.” - Darla Harland​, Les Sataniques.

"Circus Carnis never fails to deliver. Seriously, if you haven’t popped your Circus Carnis cherry yet, this is a hell of a way to get it done. I’m not going to be that guy that ruins the surprise, but this very open minded reviewer was blown away that you could actually do that with a light globe. It’s quite a thing to behold.” - Xpress Magazine, re The Bizarro Room.

"Circus Carnis, the flesh-piercing duo sort the crowd into those who can and those who can't." - Mark - the music.com.au
