Dark and delightful - new cabaret at The Fringe.

Silver Circle’s community circus troupe brings Auckland its next devilish instalment! It’s strange and it’s sexy; it’s disarming, irreverent, unexpected and mad-cap; it’s inspiring and impressive; it’s dark and delightful - always hard to define, this company brings a unique fusion of burlesque and bellydance sensuality with the physicality of martial arts, circus arts and acrobatics, all put together with a touch of song, a twist of quirky comedy, a smidgeon of intensity, and rather a lot of dabbling in our half-forgotten childhood dreams, nightmares and fantasies.

Dark Tales, the fourth Silver Circle Productions show, builds on its predecessors ‘1001 Knights’, ‘Joie de Vivre’ and ‘Bon Mort Vivant - a Dead Sexy Cabaret’, combining the talents of a diverse team of experienced performance artists, stunt fighters, and entertainers with stunning dancers, daring acrobats and personalities. This intriguing vaudeville review will take you to the birth of faery tales: dreams, fantasies and nightmares; fears and desires; difference, darkness and delight, and in February you (yes you!) can be part of it!

The last show was described as: ‘pure circus burlesque’; ‘unadulterated fun!’; ‘The choreography was excellent and... the dancing itself was simply delicious’; ‘a more enthusiastic bunch of multi-talented devotees you're never likely to meet’; ‘a two-hour riot took place and I loved every preposterous moment of it’ (‘Theatreview‘ / Wallace Arts Trust Reviews).

This show is perfect for those seeking something a bit different, something that challenges the mundane, the conventional, the expected. Come prepared for an audience-inclusive cabaret, complete with laughter and lashings of light-hearted fun. Guests are cautioned to be prepared for “possible naked-ish, sexy-ish, scary-ish stuff; strangeness and silliness” and invited to “dress up and join the fun!”
