If you’ve been left spellbound by previous Strut & Fret performances staged, as always, within The Spiegeltent, such as the acclaimed Blanc de Blanc; the outrageously entertaining The Party; or the award-winning and original LIMBO; you’re in for a treat.

LIMBO – The Return promises to deliver an exhilarating reimagining of the award-winning festival favourites – LIMBO and LIMBO Unhinged, again featuring an international cast of circus luminaries.

Combining a fresh and intoxicating mix of cabaret, circus, acrobatics, and ecstatic heart-pounding live music, LIMBO – The Return is set to seduce audiences worldwide all over again. The show will transport audiences to a realm where the line between heaven and hell blurs – resulting in an otherworldly party experience like no other.

“Audiences will be whisked away to a sinister netherworld of gut-churning contortion, breath-taking acrobatics, and jaw-dropping stunts. This is a high-powered extravaganza that leaves you gasping for breath, dancing in the aisles, and shedding a tear,” Strut & Fret Creative Director, Scott Maidment said.

The case brings together a host of wildly hypnotic, world-renowned circus performers and prolific muscicians; led by composer and New York’s Jank maestro, Sxip Shirey. Sydney musician Mick Stuart joins the live ensemble with irreverent electro-acoustic noise and playful, sexy beats.

Sxip’s haunting ethereal melodies are delivered via an eclectic collection of rare instruments including Ukrainian jaw harps, siren whistles, megaphones, industrial flute, and a glass harmonica.

LIMBO – The Return will unleash circus darlings including Bulgaria’s stunning Maria Moncheva (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Germany); French gravity-defying Chinese pole master, beatboxer, and clown, Mikael Bres (Cirque Du Soleil, La Clique); Australia’s acrobatic dancing sensation Hilton Denis; and daredevil Spanish acrobat and slackrope virtuoso David Marco.
