I sat down, waited and then watched. I looked around, took a couple of photos, shuffled a bit. I guess if anyone was looking at me (which they weren't) they would have seen a slightly curious and confused look on my face. What was going on here? What was I looking at? Who are these guys? What the?
There's lasers, selfie sticks, high-tech music and bananas. And love - we felt the love. It was like a giant group hug. The audience members are hugely involved in the show - in fact they are the show! And, it's hilarious.
Their light and sound show is skilfully put together and cleverly presented. Sirqus Alfon use all of the technology that is so much a part of everyday life for us - this is definitely a show for Gen Z'ers and everyone else who loves a fast paced, laugh out loud entertaining show.
I've seen quite a number of shows so far this Fringe and Sirqus Alfon was the first that I've been to where the audience stands as a whole and gives a roaring standing ovation. The cheering and applause were so loud I'm certain that the tent shook! People found it hard to leave. Audience members are invited to stay and play with the big screen technology and get their own Instagram selfie.
Sirqus Alfon started out busking on the streets of Berlin. It wasn't long till audiences wanted to see them and their insane acts on the stages. They premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016. They then went on tour and sold out their shows in Barcelona, Stockholm and Shanghai.
Sirqus Alfon can be seen every night (except Mondays) at Ukiyo at the Royal Croquet Club, Pinky Flat/Tarnda Womma, War Memorial Drive in the city. Tickets can be purchased online or from one of the two Fringe Box Offices at the Royal Croquet Club.
