Acrobatic duo to delight audiences
The US-based Tweaksters will use their special blend of pure athletic creativity to delight audiences in Hong Kong next month.
From ping-pong air raids to glow-in-the-dark illusions to skilful feats of strength and balance, this hour-long pulse-quickening adventure keeps audiences "oohing" and "aahing". The Tweaksters use their athletic prowess and fertile imaginations to deftly manipulate flower pots, meteors, luminescent ropes, and galvanised pipes - not to mention each other.

Regan has a string of film and TV dancing credits, including "Forrest Gump", "Sister Act II" and "Star Trek: Nemesis"; while Julia, a personal fitness trainer with a master’s degree in psychology, brings years of gymnastics, dance and yoga training to her craft.
