What: The Umbilical Brothers – Speedmouse

Umbilical Brothers

When/Where: Friday 26th July 7.30pm The J

Description: A highlight of the 2019 NOOSA alive! program is The Umbilical Brothers with their highly acclaimed show ‘Speedmouse’, taking place on Friday 26 July at 7.30pm at The J.

An international comedy phenomenon, The Umbilical Brothers have so far won a couple of BAFTAs, an Emmy, the Critics’ Choice at Edinburgh Fringe and the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performers.

Named as two of Entertainment Weekly’s “100 Most Creative People In Entertainment”, David Collins and Shane Dundas (“the Umbies”) have appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, after James Brown at Woodstock ’99, and before the Queen.

Their unique fusion of physical and vocal comedy has taken them to stadiums supporting Robin Williams and brought comedy audiences into the Sydney Opera House. They’ve also gained a fanatical toddler and late-night, potato-chip-eating college fan base with their television series The Upside Down Show, Disney’s The Book of Once Upon A Time, The Sideshow and Maisy.

They have performed in 38 countries with five different shows and are now returning with one of their most beloved ones, ‘Speedmouse’.

Full of the stuff you love best, Speedmouse is a live action, fast paced, rewind, slow motion, frame-by-frame adventure where two men create the impossible out of a microphone and a unique physical ability that has no equal.

Speedmouse has earned a bevy of five star reviews and numerous awards including best stage production and best international show, along with a multi-platinum DVD that is sold in every corner of the world.

If you haven’t seen this show live, you should. Really.

What: Beach Yoga Class Noosa ~pay as you feel

Yoga When/Where: Saturday 27th July from 9.30am Noosa Main Beach

Description: Yoga Class by the beach this Saturday (noosa main beach a little bit further to the left past the rocks – I’ll post the exact location with pic soon).
I am a yoga teacher and I used to run donation based yoga events in Melbourne and they’ve always been so much fun.
This event is donation based which means if you are able to pay something (suggested donation 5$) that’s cool but if not that’s also cool.

For beginners and advanced, old or young. Just come along with a towel or yoga mat, water and maybe a sweater or something else in case it gets cold.
Great to start the day right, get some you time and also meet new, fun people.

It’ll be a vinyasa flow that will challenge you but reward you with relaxation afterwards 🙂 we are doing a small mediation in the end as well! 🧘🏽‍♀🧘🏽‍♂

Send me a DM if you have any questions

See you all there 🙂

Cloe’s Lexis Noosa experience!

My name is Cloe Barnet, I am from Nendaz in Switzerland

CloeTestimonial

How did you find your first couple of weeks on the Noosa campus and Lexis?        

My first couple of weeks in Lexis was amazing! Everyone at Lexis was very welcoming and the weather was truly stunning.  I arrived in February and was surfing at Noosa beach in my very first week!  That was a pretty cool experience!

Why did you choose Noosa to study?

I really wanted to avoid an Australian capital city and Noosa is famous for amazing beaches which is what I was looking for!

What do you like most about Lexis and Noosa?

The teaching staff and support staff were really friendly to me and I like the chilled out environment of Noosa.

How is your classroom experience at Lexis?

I am studying towards my Cambridge Advanced Level Certificate and the classroom experience is really challenging however my teacher introduces interesting activities and games to assist in my learning.  

What are your future plans when you finish your Lexis English studies?

I am travelling to New Zealand when my course finishes and then I will return to Switzerland to commence my Bachelor in Zoology  

My passion is to work with polar bears and travel to Alaska to assist in the conservation challenges this amazing animal faces. 

What do you do in your spare time?

I like exploring so I have been through Fraser Island, Australia Zoo, through the amazing National Parks and beaches here and normally on a Thursday or Friday night I go out with my friends to dance and catch up!

Graduation!

Congratulations to our 7 Graduating students at Lexis Noosa this afternoon. We have Vera and Adilton from Elementary, Kanna from Pre Intermediate, Sibel, Stella and Nicolas from Intermediate and Chloe from FCE!
