Limbo Unhinged – The Garden – 4K

The Limbo gang are back with a more incredible show than ever. Combining physical theatre, circus stunts, comedy and acrobatics, Limbo Unhinged is a fantastic show. From the very first act the performers had the audience roused. The show begins with physical theatre; a man who winds and bends himself like a corkscrew. This is …

CIRQUE AFRICA – FRINGE 2017 – 5K

Cirque Africa, appearing for the first time in Adelaide, is a very professional but fresh high energy show featuring incredible athletes and musicians.  The live musical accompaniment was a wonderful constant whose timing, and that of the acrobats, was spot on. Arriving a few minutes late for this show I was amazed to find the …

FRINGE 2017 – ARRR is for Adventure by Atmospheric Artistries – La Petite Grande, Gluttony – 4K

To riff further on a subject of constant consternation for me, it must be beyond challenging to design and perform a children’s show. Who can pinpoint with any accuracy what the little ones will find funny or boring, entertaining or tiresome? Regardless of the source of the entertainment, it is immediately obvious when a kid’s …

SOAP-Adelaide-Fringe-2015-The-Clothesline-960x500

By Tom Eckert Previous festival winner SOAP returns to Gluttony’s The Peacock and had no trouble selling tickets managing to sell out their very first show of the season.

Fringe 2016 Dani Cabs: Poncho Orange – 3.5K

Poncho Orange was a show of firsts. Never before have I had a fringe performer feed me part of a (delicious) mango, nor had I had my face painted, nor joined an entire audience in an orchestrated conga. Dani Cabs creates a hilarious on stage persona for this show, drawing the audience in with well …

By Amy Nancarrow Having been fortunate enough to see a few physical theatre and circus shows at this year’s Fringe, I thought I’d already seen the best of the bunch – until Papillon, a combination of theatre, circus, cabaret, and comedy, made me laugh, gasp, and look on at these talented performances in awe. Set …

By Amy Nancarrow. Black lights. UV Paint. Circus performances. It’s a match made in psychedelic heaven, and this is what Sydney troupe Art Kinetica attempt with their performance of Luminous, a show filled with contortionists, circus performers, and an other-worldly cast of creatures. The concept is fantastic, and in a lot of ways, Luminous does …

Fringe 2015 – Limbo – The Garden of Unearthly Delights: Aurora Spiegeltent – 5K

safe_image.php

By Tom Eckert   It shouldn’t really surprise anyone anymore that Limbo is phenomenal. Held in the fantastical Aurora Spiegeltent, dark, moody and lined with mirrors which have you looking over your shoulder for phantasms you are not entirely sure aren’t there. It is as though someone distilled the essence of cirque, set it alight …
