LIMBO is dirty and dangerous circus-cabaret, whisking audiences worldwide into a sinister netherworld of jaw-dropping contortion, gut-churning aerial acrobatics and staggering illusions.

This record-breaking, award-winning sensation is a celebration of otherworldly proportions, directed by Scott Maidment, and presented in a magnificent 1920s inspired Spiegeltent as part of FRINGE WORLD at Elizabeth Quay.

Music is a dominating force of the production, with New York’s Sxip Shirey composing exclusive music for the show with his ecstatic melodies, irreverent electric-acoustic noise and playful, sexy beats. Ringmaster Elyas Khan is accompanied by exceptional musicians Mick Stuart and Eamon McNelis.

LIMBO’s stunning international cast also features: Coney Island’s sword swallower and vintage beauty, Heather Holliday; French gravity-defying Chinese pole master, beatboxer and clown, Mikael Bres; Australia’s acrobatic dancing sensation Hilton Denis; the exquisite French-Canadian aerialist, Evelyne Allard; the unstoppable hand balancer Danik Abishev; and mind-bending contortionist and acrobat, Tigris.

The show will be held at the Palais Des Glaces Spiegeltent at the FRINGE WORLD Fairground. Tickets available from the FRINGE WORLD website.
