Theatre: La Soiree

La Soiree (5 Stars)

Review by Laura Money

What can one say about La Soiree? This is an absolute must-see! Part of Fringeworld 2015, I would consider La Soireewith its mix of acrobatics, comedy and pure entertainment the cherry on top of the Fringeworld sundae.

This award-winning show will astound and amaze, I spent the majority of the show with my jaw on the floor and my hands clapping with delight. It is truly spectacular and I would recommend La Soiree to anyone willing to try an evening of sheer entertainment.

The diverse cast put on a variety act like nothing you’ve ever seen before: from the hilarious puppetry of Cabaret Decadanse with its mix of deft manipulation and hilarious self-awareness, puppetry has never been so alive, to the English Gentlemen who are rather adept at acrobatics, sitting on top of one another whilst reading the newspaper and giving the V for Victory sign, from hoola hooping to contortionists, magic stripped bare (literally) and everything in between there truly is something for everyone in this show.

Come down to La Soiree to witness the tongue-in-cheek athleticism that includes a man in a bath who will leave the audience wet with his unique blend of rope skills and a certain sexiness, a pole dancing performance like no other and of course the energetic and completely divine acrobatics of the manic duo David and Fofo.

La Soiree is a triumph – the perfect blend of comedy, artistry and back to basics entertainment. This is what entertainment is all about.

La Soiree is on as part of Perth’s Fringeworld 2015 in the Pleasure Garden from 28th Jan – 7th March.
