The Trip @ The Famous Spiegeltent

“A daring, sexy, tongue-in-cheek cabaret featuring a selection of incredible performers from around the world who are intent on seducing Melbourne,” is how The Famous Spiegeltent lures you to the fabulous big top for the circus/cabaret extravaganza The Trip. And boy, was I under their spell.

Hailing from Berlin, this naughty mix of drag, theatrics and Cirque de Soleil-style circus teases and excites, from its group opening number until the watery finale. Ringmaster Jack Woodhead is not only emcee for the night and cast controler, but brings the cabaret flair with his cheeky scene change songs that may shock your mum.

The eclectic cast, from strong men The Caesar Twins to unsuspecting pole dancer and juggler Girma Tsehai, had the audience on the edge of their seats with their magnetic energy (with a particular word of caution if you’re in the front row to wear something waterproof).

But the showstopper of the night is contortionist, acrobat and big fat tease David Pereira, whose body defies logic and common sense as he squeezes himself inside and around shopping trolleys and inside disco balls. Oh, and don’t forget to look out for the supposed help who pulls out a jaw-dropping act of their own.

A must see!

The Trip is on at The Famous Spiegeltent until March 3
