Strut & Fret Production House present 'Blanc de Blanc' running as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival at The Garden of Unearthly Delights - Magic Mirror Spiegeltent with various sessions at 4:00pm, 6:00pm and 8:30pm from Feb 24th - March 19th. Blanc de Blanc is a French themed Cabaret Circus show filled with adult themes and strong nudity. It is rated R18. Be prepared to see a lot of skin and play along as they celebrate French Champagne. By the end of the show, guests are craving a glass of ice cold expensive Champagne.

Throughout the show, each act featured a new bottle of Champagne used somehow in the performance. At one point they poured the Champagne into a glass using a woman's body. Directed by Scott Maidment and starring Monsieur Romeo, Spencer Novich, Dominique Domingo, Emma Maye Gibson, Jaimi Luhrmann, Laura New, Jérôme Sordillon, Shun Sugimoto, Masha Terentieva, Hampus Jansson and Milena Straczynski.

The show featured a breathtaking aerial act using a luggage trolley elevated into the air. The aerial artists, Hampus Jansson and Milena Straczynski, perform their acrobatic routine rising and lowering in and out of a spa bath filled with water and ping-pong balls. Don't sit in the front row unless you're happy to get a little wet.

A highlight of the show was one performer's cabaret piece to 'I Will Survive', but it wasn't your usual cabaret piece because there was no music. The audience quickly realised they needed to sing the words so she would dance. 'I Will Survive' is a popular anthem and karaoke song, so naturally the whole audience knew the lyrics.

One audience member was invited up to learn how to properly open a bottle of champagne, while another took a seat on stage and was celebrated with a candle. The show, set in the 1940's, is a celebration and inspiration of that decade. Blanc de Blanc has everything you need for a great fringe show, music, comedy and alcohol.
