For this year’s festival, the elegant interior of the Forum transforms into an intimate cabaret salon; the perfect setting for the mind-blowing revelry of La Soirée. A heady display of dizzying delights, this frenetic sideshow has enticed audiences the world over with its unparalleled assortment of raw talent and high energy.

A cocktail of jaw-dropping acrobats, mind-bending contortionists and thrilling chanteuses, spiced with a pinch of the exotic and the erotic and well seasoned with humour, La Soirée is a beguiling concoction that has left audiences around the world spellbound, titillated and amazed.

The ever-evolving, continually revolving repertoire of international artists includes the return of pliable Nordic wunderkind Captain Frodo; the delightfully acrobatic English Gents; the inimitable Ursula Martinez and her disappearing hanky; Adonis in denim David O’Mer (AKA ‘Bath Boy’); and irrepressible spandex showstopper Le Gateau Chocolat – not to mention a few exciting new additions to the dysfunctional La Soirée family.

This rogue’s gallery of artists previously performed together under the name La Clique, a show that smashed box office records throughout Europe, the US and Australia, collecting a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment during its extended run on London’s West End.

Outrageous, bizarre and astounding, La Soirée is a frenzied feast of award-winning performances from the crème de la crème of twisted cabaret.

"Beautiful. Funny. Impossible. La Soirée's triumph is that there's not a single moment when one, two or all three of those terms don't apply." – The Guardian (UK)
