‘But Wait…There’s More’

‘…Lilikoi Kaos, whose larger than life attitude transcends all communication barriers.’

Sydney Morning Herald-Chloe Smethurst- June 20, 2014

‘Highlights of the performance were Lilikoi Kaos, reminiscent of Bette Midler in both stature and energy, and who engaged constantly with the audience as she worked the stage.’

Stage Whispers – Shirley Jensen – June 20, 2014

 ‘There are highlights, no doubt. From the poignancy of the unicycle duet, to the cheeky joy of Lilikoi Kaos‘ hula-hooping.’

Broadway World – Jacqueline Bublitz – June 21, 2014 

‘Opening the show was the Princess of Australian Circus, Lilikoi Kaos, with her brilliant and sassy hula hoop routine. This routine deserves 5 stars alone, and Lilikoi’s masterful manipulation of not only one, but 50 or more hoops at once, was a beautiful sight to be seen.’

Toorak Times – Melynda Van Wayward – June 23, 2014

‘Acts which captured the attention of young and old alike were many, but those which stand-out particularly would have to be the unicycle duet performed by April Dawson and Kyle Raftery; Nathan Kell’s unique take on the traditional diving through hoops routine, as he substituted the hoops for a plasma TV and stand; Lilikoi Kaos’ 101 hoop mania…

‘Close to the Bone’

‘Probably the highlight of the entire performance was the clowning by Lilikoi Kaos, whose hilariously expressive facial expressions won some genuine belly laughs.’

Arts Hub – Isabelle Orderberg – Dec 15, 2014

La Clique

“These acts are superb and often spectacular in their own right but it is the collective impact wielded by the entire La Clique family … coming together in this most ideal of venues which creates a magical experience … the greatest show on the Fringe.”

Fiona Shepherd, The Scotsman *****

 Lilikoi Kaos with her hula hoop act done to Minnie the Moocher is audacious and jaw droppingly skilled.’

The Edinburgh Guide – Irene Brown – Aug 12, 2012

 La Clique Royale

‘Sideshow star Lilikoi Kaos contributes stunning hula hoop choreographies interspersed with farcical visual gags’.

Fringe Review- C.J. Lazaretti 17 Aug 2012

Glory Box – Sydney

‘…special, limited edition guest artist, the petite yet voluptuous Lilikoi Kaos, who does things with hoops that defy the eye, musically accompanied by electroswing, which provides an ideal rhythmic bed. It’s all down to impeccable timing and acute comic sensibility.’

Crikey-Curtain Call- Lloyd Bradford Syke- NOV 22, 2012

‘The Burlesque Hour is joined by Lilikoi Kaos ‘Princess of Circus, Sideshow & Vaudeville’ this gyrating, hip-shaking, breath-taking superstar flown in direct from a 5 star sell out show ‘La Clique Royale’ in Edinburgh.’

Glory Box – Garden of Unearthly Delights – Adelaide Fringe

Lilikoi Kaos is a crowd favourite, particularly during her hula hoop number – who knew it was possible to smoke a cigarette, perform a sultry striptease and pull off a show-stopping hula hoop routine all at once? With her flexibility, circus skills and easy charm, she quickly has the crowd rapt.’

Adelaide Theatre Guide – Paige Mulholland – Mar 13, 2013

Parasouls

CircusWorks at TheatreWorks season

With a feminist take on traditional circus skills, these women introduced to the audience issues such as cultural stereotypes, bodies on display and what it is like for women to be ‘dismembered’ by society. We ladies were warned to know our limits and then all limits were broken with some awesome fire twirling and hardcore hula hooping from Lilikoi.

Arts Hub – Melinda Von Derksen – 7 DEC, 2009

This seductive sweetness is counterbalanced by her fiery red-headed co-star(Lilikoi), who in one scene appears in a strait jacket and tied up in chains. It is like Houdini without the water, and not only does she escape but she does so with striking acrobatic precision and while performing with a hula-hoop, all set to a thumping remix of memorable madhouse anthem ‘They’re Coming To Take Me Away Ha-haa’. A fascinating and disquieting spectacle.

Australian Stage – Danu Pointer – Dec. 4, 2009

‘Circuside’

This is not sideshow simply as spectacle. Lilikoi Kaos has imbued the production with a subtle narrative about relationships, isolation, outsiders, and a loss of connection in the modern world.’

‘When I Grow Up’

“…Lilikoi demonstrated professionalism, showmanship and acrobatic skill far beyond her years”

‘…When I Grow Up is not only an invigorating display of athletic talent, it provides an opportunity for these young performers to voice their concerns about what lies ahead through an unconventional medium.’

The Age – Cameron Woodhead – Oct. 11, 2006
