Festival Details - "Black Cat Cabaret to Headline Underbelly Festival with Brand New Show BLACK CAT: BOHEMIA"...
The Black Cat Cabaret has been captivating the city’s audiences with their dark and daring brand of cabaret entertainment for more than a decade. Black Cat: Bohemia is the company’s most ambitious show to date, and premières with the company’s first headline run at Underbelly Festival Southbank. Combining high skills acrobatic feats and spectacular ensemble work with comic turns and live music, the show’s 12-strong cast elevate cabaret and circus to new levels of jaw-dropping glamour. This is a thrilling theatrical experience not to be missed this summer!
Opening 22 August, the show conjures up a psychedelic circus world drawing inspiration from the utopian visions of Angela Carter. A band of show-folk and its shadowy emcee arrive at the
Southbank, inviting audiences on a journey through their riotously colourful circus world. The troupe combines circus with a commitment to Art for Art’s Sake values, and a firmly held belief that the party must go on! But as the lines between fantasy and reality start to blur, their world threatens to unravel.
Taking up a 6-week residency at Underbelly Festival Southbank’s glorious Paradiso spiegeltent, Black Cat: Bohemia is the perfect place to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the world’s first circus – where Philip Astley first created a rope ring just streets away in the marshland around Waterloo station. As producer of the festival’s final headline show, The
Black Cat Cabaret is flying the flag for London’s underground cabaret and circus scene amongst an array of international talent on offer throughout the program.
