Sound of Circus Australia

Oat Milk & Honey

Sound of Circus Australia is South Australia’s freshest multi-award-winning creative company, co-founded by Filipino/Australian musician Nathan Chettle and Australian acrobat Amanda Lee.

Spending the most recent years of their careers working as ensemble artists with internationally renowned companies such as Circa and Gravity & Other Myths, as well as supporting multiple Grammy Awards-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote, Lee and Chettle have joined forces to create an exciting collaboration of world-class artistry.

Sound of Circus Australia smashed into the international creative industry with their debut work, Oat Milk & Honey, a 60-minute collaborative performance reflecting on the raw human experience of anxiety. After its world premiere in Adelaide Fringe 2023, the critically acclaimed Oat Milk & Honey picked up a multitude of awards, before becoming a ‘Highest Seller’ at Summerhall during Edinburgh Fringe.

Sound of Circus Australia represents an objectively idiosyncratic ability to drive urgent societal change through elite artistic performance.


Oat Milk & Honey is an avant-garde blend of poetic music and breathtaking acrobatics performed by two of Australia’s leading performing artists, elegantly reflecting on the raw human experience of anxiety. Oat Milk & Honey provides a sophisticated, safe space to laugh, cry, breathe and heal.

Oat Milk & Honey premiered at the 2023 Adelaide Fringe Festival, where it received both a ‘Best Circus’ Weekly Award and the ‘Arts SA Edinburgh Fringe Award’. After performing a sold-out run in the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Summerhall, this immensely popular work received an esteemed ‘Lustrum Award’, and was shortlisted for the ‘Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence’. This work has proven immense popularity through deep emotional connection to audiences of all ages and represents critically relevant societal conversation.

Oat Milk & Honey was made in collaboration with accessibility and psychology professionals to provide a hyper-empathetic, safe conversation of sensitive themes. This work is proudly supported by Arts South Australia and the Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund.
