Reuben DotDotDot was born in Melbourne, Australia. At the age of 11 he discovered gymnastics and spent the next 5 years training and competing. At the age of 16 he looked at his competition leotard, realised that purple and gold were not his colours, and quit.
He spent the next 2 years of high school surfing, skating and snowboarding. He continued to nurture these passions through the first 2 years of his degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy, and subsequently failed them both. Reuben then began training in earnest to become the entertainer he is today. On his way he acquired (completely legally) a diploma in small company/community theatre, traditional acrobatic training from the Beijing Acrobatic Troupe, a huge range of circus and performance skills, and a complete loss of vertigo.
Performing professionally around the world, Reuben is a true entertainer.
Pushing the limits beyond upside down, Reuben Dot Dot Dot debuts his new, one of a kind show for the 2019 festival. An acrobatic handstand stunt show with style. Bringing you more skills, thrills and overkill… Putting a hat on with his feet, sipping a drink or two while balancing precariously, perched on one hand high in the air, this show is spectacular, unforgettable, inverted, and above all WELL BALANCED.
