Life – the show

Concert or Performance

8 Jan 2020 to 26 Jan 2020

From Strut and Fret, the mad-genius makers behind Limbo (Sydney Festival 2014 and 2015) and Cantina (Sydney Festival 2013), comes a joyful celebration of what it means to be alive – from first meeting to first mating, from birth-control to breastfeeding, and beyond.

Charge your glass, raise your hands and let the cast of international prodigies and deviants take you on an adventure into hedonistic theatrical anarchy.

Step into the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent with international clowning royalty Goos Meeuwsen and Helena Bittencourt (Cirque du Soleil), bass sax supremo Blaise Garza (Violent Femmes), dancer and vocalist Rechelle Mansour (Velvet), tap dancer Hilton Denis (LIMBO), aerialist Elke Uhd (Palazzo) and powerhouse American drummer Attis Clopton.

Be warned: this show contains drug references, full frontal nudity, attempted pyrokinesis and adult concepts (aka exactly what you’re expecting).
