Effervescent, exquisite, Ma’amselle Claire steps lightly with beauty and grace. Enveloped in her cloud of bubbles Ma’amselle Claire leaves a trail of enraptured, smiling faces. Watch the bubbles burst their surprises in the sunshine or notice the magic of floating balls in the half-light of evening.
“For the past 4 years we have had Manoeuvres Act Ma'amselle Claire, perform at our Family Fun Day's for Brisbane Festival and we could not be happier with their performance. We are always impressed with their professionalism, infectious energy, enga ... gement of audience and physical expression; ultimately adding to the atmosphere of the festival. They are a must have at any event.” --- Brisbane Festival, QLD
Strangers in a strange land, stalking and creeping on their long insect like legs. Where are they from? Why are they here? Beautiful and intriguing, they communicate with a haunting language of gaunt postures, spindly shapes and piercing gazes. Searching, enquiring - seeking the familiar in an unfamiliar landscape.
“Hauntingly beautiful...sublime....absolutely captivating and other worldly” ---Childers Multicultural Festival, QLD

Under those demure veiled faces lies a mischievous sense of humour. A cheekiness that is reflected in Lip Service’s costuming, movement and style, as well as in their interactions with their audience. These girls are not just a pretty sight. Take a breath, reach deep into the mouth of their proffered handbag, choose a card and read your ‘thought for the day’! Fabulous at Festivals roving amongst the crowd. Completely classy as they mingle at a conference. Perfectly Placed at any dinner or gala ball. Lip Service has definitely got it all …
“The performers are amazing!! We have had them for the past 8 years and will continue to do so. We absolutely love having them! Highly professional and interactive, fully engaging and incredibly unique. We would recommend them for any function!” --- Nundah Festival, QLD
Gracefully arising above the ground, the public looks astonished when this Black & Red, long legged creature flutters along, seducing and persuading its audience with delight. As this majestic creature strides through the crowd using its unusual shaped head to look serenely around all are left in cheer admiration and wonder. ENTE represents the dark side in all of us.
“On behalf of the committee organising the 2011 Tara Festival of Culture, we would like to congratulate Manoeuvre Stilt Walkers on their fabulous contribution to our event. They interacted so well with the crowd and also with the other entertainers. Their frequent costume changes and characterisation was a hit with all ages. Even the teenagers thought they were cool (not easy to get that audience). We would certainly look at having them back in the future.” --- Kerri Wood and Mary Youngberry, VIC
