Underbelly Circus Hub on the Meadows
Dance, Physical Theatre and Circus
“Circus for grown ups: a decadent blend of sensational acrobatics, operatic cabaret and twisted burlesque. Weeklies winner Best Circus Adelaide Fringe 2018 and Fringeworld 2019. ‘Welcome to a circus for the new age… Brilliant performances covered with rhythm and attitude with a certain aura permeates the venue that embodies the phrase “Filthy and Gorgeous”‘ (WeekendNotes.com). ‘The performance is so high energy, so passionate and executed with such abandon that it can’t help but leave you feeling elated and empowered… if you aren’t turned on by this you might want to consult a physician, because you’re probably clinically dead’ (SmutButtons.com).”
Review by Richard Lambert, 4 Stars
A cabaret for adults that includes fierce costumes, fire, aerial, live singing, sex and sass. This is a show that doesn’t preach at you, accepts you, and welcomes everyone without prejudice. The message isn’t laboured, the talent is huge and sometimes we all need to treat ourselves to an hour of zesty entertainment that’ll leave you happy and smiling inwardly and outwardly.
Highlight of the show is the absurd lampshade number – 5 performers doing the worm dressed in lampshades. Thankfully, on this show, nobody ever thought to say “no” or “be sensible”.
A wonderous joyous show full of zing!
