Details: Direct from Paris, France, this cutting edge of contemporary circus is a perfect show for the whole family (recommended for children ages 8+). The Elephant in the Room was a sold-out hit at Underbelly during the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and enjoyed a 5-month run at Bobino in Paris in the autumn of 2016.

Deliciously retro and absolutely original, Cirque Le Roux delves into a smoky monochrome world of Circus arts, Hollywood film noir and physical theatre. Welcome to the luxurious estate of Miss Betty and autumn 1937, between her desperate husband, a fumbling valet and a lustful admirer, our hostess slips away from her wedding reception into a secluded smoking lounge. Cigars, whiskey, slapstick and remarkable acrobatics culminate into a turbulent amorous intrigue.

Cirque Le Roux stirs up a dose of wit and eccentricity, seamlessly blending storytelling with high-level acrobatics. The four artists perfect everything from costumes to set design, peerless circus numbers to the mysteries of love, friendship and the obvious truths we choose to ignore.

The 2018/2019 BPAC season also includes: Martin Levac: Dance into the Light, Lightwire Theater: A Very Electric Christmas, Mike Super: Magic & Illusion, The Sleeping Beauty from the National Ballet Theatre of Odessa, Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba: Made in Cuba, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy and more!
