LIMBO

 

HEAVEN CAN WAIT. THIS IS ONE HELL OF A PARTY!

Welcome to an exotic illogical world, where peculiar characters wait on the edge of false awakening. A with the whisper of spirits and domination, illusion, suspension; LIMBO is boundless.

An intoxicating mix of cabaret, circus and acrobatics, LIMBO continues to seduce audiences worldwide with a celebration of otherworldly proportions.

LIMBO sold out its premiere season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2013. Since then it has captivated audiences at London Wonderground Festival, 2013-14 (UK); Edinburgh Christmas Festival, 2013 (UK); Sydney Festival 2014-15 (AUS); Festival de Teatro Bogota, 2014 (COL); Aalborg Spiegeltent Festival, 2014 (DNK); Brisbane Festival, 2014 (AUS); Tollwood Winter Festival, Munich 2014 (GER); Auckland Festival, 2015 (NZL); Kermezzo(o), Brussels, 2015 (BEL), Edinburgh Fringe, 2015 (UK); Melbourne Festival, 2015 (AUS); Fringe World Perth, 2016 (AUS); and Spiegeltent Hobart, 2016 (AUS).

Directed by Scott Maidment, and presented in the magnificent 1920s inspired Spiegeltent, LIMBO whisks audiences into a sinister netherworld of gut-churning contortion, breath-taking acrobatics and jaw-dropping stunts. Music is a dominating force of the production, with New York’s Sxip Shirey composing exclusive music for the show with his ecstatic melodies, irreverent electric-acoustic noise and playful, sexy beats. Sxip is accompanied by exceptional musicians Mick Stuart and Eamon McNelis.

LIMBO’s stunning international cast also features: Coney Island’s sword swallower and vintage beauty, Heather Holliday; French gravity-defying Chinese pole master, beatboxer and clown, Mikael Bres; Australia’s acrobatic dancing sensation Hilton Denis; the exquisite French-Canadian aerialist, Evelyne Allard; the unstoppable hand balancer Danik Abishev; and introducing French mind-bending contortionist and acrobat, Aurelien Oudot.

Don’t miss your chance to see the show so hot, Madonna came twice.
