Parisian flair and speakeasy debauchery meet in this well-oiled production that mixes champagne, aerials and lingerie. It’s as cheeky as it is jaw-dropping and high-production values show off the company’s slickness and attention to detail.

The Fortuna Spiegeltent has a 1920s charm and together with the art deco inspired set – flapper dresses, empire headpieces, and dapper suits – it encases you in an atmosphere of decadence. Hosts Remi Martin Lenz and Felix Pouliot play off one another effortlessly as their jokes – and outfits – become increasingly risqué.

While the ensemble of acrobats, dancers and singers are each remarkable, of particular note are the mind-boggling feats of contortionist Ugi Otgonbayar and the aerial hoop routine of Caitlin Tomson-Moylan and Spencer Craig.

With more confetti and pillow fights than you can poke a special French ‘musical instrument’ at, Blanc de Blanc Encore is a decadent and intoxicating night out.
