Direct from London's West End, the award-winning smash hit from Fringe World 2015 through 2017, 'La Soirée' is back!
Fringe World Festival Director Amber Hasler says the opportunity to bring back the Fringe favourite was too good to pass up.
“What a wonderful New Year’s present to get another serving of all the razzle dazzle in 'La Soirée'. This show is pure Fringe fare; it’s joyous, celebratory, hilarious, cheeky, irreverent and at times quite saucy and slightly twisted,” Amber says.
'La Soirée' replaces 'Club Swizzle' at Fringe World, which due to unforeseen circumstances is no longer in the Festival.
'La Soirée' returns – reimagined, bigger and bolder than ever! The trailblazing, multi-award-winning show that broke all the rules, captured the world’s imagination and redefined contemporary cabaret takes up residence this summer.
Joyous, celebratory, jaw-dropping and downright unmissable, 'La Soirée' features a roll call of international artists in an astonishing and wildly entertaining line-up.
Cabaret Décadance from Montreal is a sassy, sexy and hilarious puppet feast for adults in which the puppeteers André-Anne Leblanc and Colin St-Cyr-Duhamel are as mesmerising as the puppets themselves. Straight from the streets of Mumbai, be astounded by the unparalleled strength and spectacular skill of Mallakhamb India on Indian Pole with duo Rajesh Amrale and Aakash Pilwalkar. Performing seriously dangerous tricks in front of live audiences is par for the course for Fratelli Rossi, acrobatic brothers Alejandro and Ricardo Rossi.
Lucky Hell is one of the most revered sword swallowers of our time, a combination of high glamour and unbelievable skill. The wickedly sultry Carla Lippis brings her fierce brand of rock ’n’ roll swagger to the stage. There will be acrobatic mayhem in store with an incredible powerhouse trio: Ben Lewis exhibits his dazzling display of strength in a sexy strap routine; the dynamic and daring Will Meager on the astonishing Cyr Wheel; and the powerful and fearless Will Underwood on Chinese pole. And there’s more to come!
After three sell-out seasons at Fringe World, the 'La Soirée' 2019 season is guaranteed to be the most spectacular one yet.
'La Soirée' plays The Ice Cream Factory from 17 January-3 March.
