Circus

NOVEAU CIRQUE DE VIETNAM

You’ve got only tonight and tomorrow night to get to the Sydney Opera House to see the best circus-dance-music EVER!  The world-renowned Vietnamese Circus is in town and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Without the glitz and flashy costumes of Cirque du Soleil, it is a refreshing performance with the precision, imagination and joyfulness that is rare to the Sydney scene.

The Nouveau Cirque du Vietnam has performed at the Perth Festival to fabulous reviews.  It has been acclaimed around the world.

Olivia Anseel, head of SOH Contemporary Performance says “Prepare to witness a unique physical theatre and circus production, a dynamic and humorous spectacle full of joy and theatrical brilliance”.

There should be another word for this show.  It’s more than ‘circus’. It’s more an live music, acrobatics, beat boxing and story-telling.  It’s a visual feast with subtleties that embed in the heart, embrace the brain and beguile the spirit.  

Nouveau Cirque du Vietnam received standing ovations last night. Get yourself there tonight or tomorrow night (June 14 and 15) or miss out on something special.  Family friendly. Tickets from $39.

These picturesque boats are found along the coast of Vietnam and produce fond memories for visitors and locals. This was a promising introduction and the subsequent performance lived up to expectations. Continue reading À Ố Làng Phố @ THE JOAN SUTHERLAND THEATRE
