CIRQUE LE ROUX: The Elephant In The Room

November 9, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Circus. Comedy. Crime.  Deliciously retro and absolutely original, Cirque Le Roux delves into a smoky monochrome world of circus arts, Hollywood film noir and physical theatre! Welcome to the luxurious estate of Miss Betty, in autumn 1937.  Caught between her desperate husband, a fumbling valet, and a lustful admirer, our hostess slips away from her wedding reception into a secluded smoking lounge. Hidden amongst the darkly decadent ambience, is an elephant in the room that’s taking up more and more space…. Cirque Le Roux serves up a dose of wit and eccentricity, seamlessly blending storytelling with high-level acrobatics. The four artists perfect everything from costumes, to set design, perilous circus numbers to the mysteries of love, friendship and the obvious truths we choose to ignore.  A perfect show for the entire family.
