What: The Umbilical Brothers – Speedmouse

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.
NB Recommended ages 15+ (this show contains coarse language, adult themes, strobe lighting, loud noises and excessive 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 🙂

Balloon Animal Workshop

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students enjoyed a Balloon Animal Workshop run by one of our very own students Junki from the Intermediate A class.

Junki runs Balloon animal workshops for his work back in Japan.

Firstly Junki talked the students through how to make the balloon animals and the history behind them. Then he moved onto the workshop where he demonstrated a step by step tutorial on how to make them.

Hope everyone enjoyed their afternoon. There were definitely many laughs coming from the group this afternoon!

Meet Student Philipp Hänggi

 

My Stay in Noosa by Philipp Hänggi

Phillip recently studied at Lexis Noosa both in general English and in an Accelerate Small Group Class. He kindly agreed to share his experiences with us. This is his story.

 

My stay in Noosa

My name is Philipp and I live in Switzerland. I decided to brush up on my English before starting a new job in Switzerland. I took some General English followed by an Accelerated Small Group Class. The combination of both courses was excellent. Both for meeting new exciting people and improving the language.

I chose Noosa because of its nature, beautiful long beaches and because I prefer a charming town rather than a crowded city.

When I arrived in Noosa, I was even more impressed than I had expected by how green it was everywhere. It also means that there are always colourful birds twittering and bush turkeys sometimes with cute chicks around. No wonder that the bush turkey is the symbolic animal of Noosa.

I stayed at a homestay to get the experience how Aussies live and to improve my English even more. It was a very valuable decision which I really enjoyed.

There are plenty of activities people can do in and around Noosa. After school, I usually went surfing which is a must-do in Noosa for anyone of any skill from beginner to expert.

I also went paragliding many times to fly alongside the beach or over the gorgeous National Park to experience a wonderful sunset from a bird’s eye view. That was definitively one of my greatest highlights in Australia.

A bit less adventurous but no less interesting was jogging or walking through the National Park and looking for some Koalas which were hiding in the trees.

Another amazing thing was simply the remarkable friendliness of the local people. It did not take long to get invited for a drink on the beach or even for a barbeque at their house.

That kindness is already reason enough to come back to Australia.

I am already looking forward to planning my next adventure Down Under and visiting some old friends.

Suzie and students 2

Suzie and students

Sayaka Nagano and Mika Aruga met in 2008 whilst studying at Lexis English Noosa in teacher Suzies class. They are still best friends and returned to Noosa to celebrate ten years since their wonderful student days here. There were tears and smiles when they discovered that Suzie was still teaching here and it was a beautiful reunion. Sayaka married an Australian and has settled in Sydney working as a Kindy teacher. Mika lives in Tokyo and works as a medical engineer.  They said that they have still kept in touch with many of their international classmates and will never forget their  happy carefree days as a student in Noosa.

Thank you for coming in and sharing your story with us Sayaka and Mika.
