FRINGEWORLD: La Soiree (5 stars)

The incomparable La Soiree returns to Perth FRINGEWORLD  in a sensational new line-up. Featuring some classic favourites and fiery new acts, this incredibly unique show is perfect for the whole family. Already seen it? See it again – it will be a whole new experience.

Expect to see a comeback from the fabulous contortionist Captain Frodo – his comedic timing and rubber-like body make for the utmost entertainment; The English Gents – Denis Lock and Hamish McCann are also back, much to the delight of the female population of Perth, with their class strong-man duo act. They are also branching out on their own this year – McCann reprises his raunchy apparatus routine that will re-define the term ‘core strength,’ and Lock brings us a delightful moment of repose that merges the effervescent lightness of bubbles, magic and a level of class not dissimilar to Sherlock Holmes.

Newbies include Miss Frisky, a powerhouse vocalist with a larger than life personality; Mario: Queen of the Circus – a Freddie Mercury devotee and look-a-like and gravity defying juggler; vaudevillian clown Mooky whose comic timing is so clever, it’s from another era! There are spectacular feats of acrobatic prowess on hoops, straps and hula hoops, that will guarantee your jaw will remain permanently on the floor throughout.

The exclusive La Soiree Speigeltent is camped in the Museum Gardens and is a haven of cabaret, smoky bars, summer garden lights and refreshments. The Speigeltent really heats up as the scintillating show rocks, thrills, and gives you chills. This show will make you gasp in disbelief and delight at its unique blend of cheeky cabaret, sultry acrobatics, vaudevillian intrigue, and sheer showmanship.

Can’t get enough of La Soiree? This year, they also present the hottest going away party ever. Club Soiree is a one-off special wrap-up party to close out the season, with exclusive performances, mindblowing party tricks and a few other surprises not seen in La Soiree on Sunday 6th March at 9:30pm.
