As the circus action kicks off in the big top at Noreuil Park oval, a different kind of entertainment will take place at nearby HotHouse Theatre.
The physical theatre comedy Tale of Two Harpiesforms part of this year's extended 15-day program for Borderville, presented by the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.
'Harpie one', Emilie Bloom, said it was exciting she and Nicci Wilks could bring the world premiere of their show to the Butter Factory Theatre.
"The seed of it was planted about four years ago and it's been evolving," she said.
"Now with the support of HotHouse and Celsius, we're able to be a part of Borderville.
"We had a lot of online Zoom rehearsals and meetings with Kofi Isaacs, ex-fruity and lighting designer, and Meg Shiels who is also an ex-fruity."
Ms Wilks is herself a past Fruit Fly, being originally from Albury, and visited Albury Hospital as a clown doctor for The Humour Foundation.
She said their performance would fit the Borderville theme and entertain local families.
"It's very visual and visceral," she said.
"We're looking forward to being in front of an audience, and I think this audience will be a warm audience and keen to see some live theatre again.
"There's a lot of people coming from Melbourne; we sent an email out really encouraging people to go and visit the regions."
The Bloom & Wilks performers will also take vision impaired audience members on a a backstage tactile tour prior to their matinee.
HotHouse producer Beck Palmer said Tale of Two Harpies, directed by Susie Dee, was supported by Celsius.
"Celsius is an independent theatre program that was started a couple of years ago, and the Harpies were successful applicants," she said.
"The Celsius program has been supporting work that will go into future production here, and these guys already had something on the way."
Ms Palmer said HotHouse had strong links with Borderville and the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.
"During the first iteration of Borderville, which was 2018, Hothouse had a production here, but we didn't with the last Borderville - so it's a return," she said.
"We've already programmed that there will be a show during Borderville that will align so that we can collaborate.
"The ties between the two companies go back such a long way."
Borderville runs from December 4 to December 18, with Tale of Two Harpies running only this week.
- Performances are at 7.30pm on Friday, and 3pm and 7.30pm on Saturday. Secure tickets early.
