If ever a cabaret show was more sexy, bold and as inclusive as Little Death Club is then I have yet to discover it.
Bernie Dieter chatted to LLLC’s Emma Clarendon about Little Death Club, performing as part of the Underbelly Festival.
On the one hand, you might consider Little Death Club as just another late night cabaret show, but on experiencing this extraordinary hour, you see that it really is more than that, something ferociously committed to the spirit of defiance in which this form was birthed.
Little Death Club is a cabaret of the late night variety, a kind of seductive circus of misfits and certainly not for the prudish.
Overall, A Simple Space celebrates the best of circus in a simple, stylish and contemporary way that is thoroughly engaging to watch from beginning to end.
Bohemia is packed full of breathtaking, hilarious, edge-of-your-seat performances – everything you could wish for in a show like this. “The night belongs to us,” sings Miss Frisky during an entertaining finale. It most certainly does.
Metta theatre’s The Little Mermaid at the Underbelly Festival is skilful, charming, and lyrically beautiful in music and movement, economically directed by Burton Morgan.
Every performer displays bucket-loads of charisma, musical talent and quite sublime circus skills in The Little Mermiad. Even if you don’t have a child to entertain, you can’t fail to be utterly entranced by this delightful, splashy sisterhood.
Peepshow is more adult, a shade darker than other productions that I’ve seen before but without losing the overall Circa feel. Atmospheric and exciting, with all the technical prowess expected, this feels like a strong addition to the Circa canon.
There’s a reason Circa is known as the rockstars of the circus world; the company certainly knows how to put on a great show that thrills and entertains.
