Fringe Circus 2020 – Rouge – Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent – 5K

In the interests of full disclosure, I have seen ‘Rouge’ before, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to see this sexy, scintillating and sensual adult circus again.

Each element of this show is flawless, from the music (including the Diva’s spectacular singing) to the acrobatics and the audience interaction  through witty and hilarious banter.

Watching a masterful performance like this truly allows you to separate the consummate professionals from the somewhat more amateurish circus performers you may see elsewhere in the Fringe. You will see all of the traditional circus staples, including hula hoops, silks, fire play – and even some (very modern, very adult) clowning.

For repeat viewers like myself, you may recognise that some acts from previous years have been kept in the show with absolutely no changes, so beware of this if you are expecting a completely new show. Nonetheless, this is a performance I could watch over and over again, and still be thrilled and overwhelmed.

If you want to experience true mastery of the human form, get yourself along to see ‘Rouge’.  Bear in mind that it really is an ADULT circus – so maybe don’t go on a first date or with your grandparents if you want to avoid blushing all night.

Otherwise, an absolute must-see – 5K
