Brighton Fringe Preview – La Clique
Sometimes when we talk about ‘Cabaret’ people use to visualise a burlesque entertainers in a style-brothel. Far miles to be true, La Clique showcases the world’s best circus, an inspired melange of cabaret, new burlesque and magic with Australian roots.
First conceived in 2004 for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where the critics have been unanimous in their praise: ‘Sexy, daring and utterly stunning… It could be easily the most spectacular show you see at the Fringe’ stated the guide THREE WEEKS.
Throughout May we have a unique occasion to see this outrageous, unforgettable, legendary show: La Clique. It returns to Brighton into the largest travelling tent that Brighton Fringe and Brighton Festival have brought to us: The Famous Spiegeltent. A construction of wood and canvas; decorated with mirrors and stained glass.
The Spielgeltent is a mainstay of international arts festivals and is a star in her own right, was built in 1920 and has hosted some of the world’s greatest performing artists as the wonderful German singer Marlene Dietrich. We are lucky to be hosting this tent filled with some of the best acts every day and night throughout the month of May.
To mark the occasion and in honour of Brighton Fringe Festival, La Clique group have written a brand new cabaret show, which is to be one of the Fringe’s best sellers.
La Clique will take place on at The Spiegeltent Tuesdays to Sundays at 21PM until the 2nd of June.. Choose the day that suits you better, come and see yourself this funny, sexy, dangerous circus and cabaret.
Tickets are priced at £20 (£17 Brighton Fringe Friends), available from Brighton Fringe Box Office and online through Brighton Fringe site.
