A Sexy & Funny combination of Circus, Cabaret & Vaudeville

Wunderkammer by Circa Is presented by The Adelaide Festival Centre. It a show that combines circus, vaudeville and cabaret in a beautiful and breathtaking performance that takes acrobats and movement and melts them into one seamless whole. It pushes the extremes and keeps audience members at the edge of their seats. It leaves guests gasping at the almost impossible tricks they perceive to look so easy.

Circa, Brisbane based circus created Wunderkammer to blend bodies, lights, sound and skills into one tasteful cocktail. Its a celebration of the expressive possibilities of the human body at its extremes. Created by Yaron Lifschitz known for his artistic direction in 'The Light of Stars', 'How Like an Angel', 'S' and 'Beyond and Opus'. Staring Nathan Boyle, Jessica Connell, Gerramy Marsen, Daniel O'Brien, Brittannie Portelli, Kimberley Rossi and Duncan West.

These seven performers have the ability to bend the very fabric of reality. The show is made up of a series of acrobatic routines featuring trapeze, group acrobatics and a comedic dance sequence. A stand out was the tap dance routine produced using only bubble wrap and the sexy trapeze. The three person shoulder stand was incredible and the one guy, three girl stand was unbelievable. The tricks had guests gasping for more and cheering between routines.

Unlike traditional circuses this one doesn't use elaborate costumes and characters to get the audiences attention. It relies on a raw physical connection between the performers and the audience and this performance didn't lose the audiences attention for a minute.

If you haven't seen it yet, then don't miss your chance to see this incredible breathtaking circus spectacular running at Her Majesty's Theatre until October 4th.
