2016 snap disability festval sarah houbolt koo koo the birdgirl

If you're wondering why there's a trapeze in the Mining Exchange at the moment, Sarah Houbolt can explain.

Also known as Koo Koo the Birdgirl, she dropped in to have a chat about her time at Sydney 2000, her circus art, hula-hoops and her death-defying aerial act.

She is part of the Snap Arts and Disability Festival, which starts tonight [Fri 25 Nov] and runs for ten days at the Lydiard St Nth venue.
