IMG_9325 copy.jpgThe international smash hit slips into Melbourne for its premiere season 

After sell-out seasons in Edinburgh, London, Berlin, Brisbane and Adelaide Fringe (2015), SOAP is set

to make a splash in its Melbourne debut at MICF 2017 with its spectacular fusion of contemporary circus,

comedy and cabaret - set in, on and around bathtubs.

Direct from Germany, SOAP presents some of the world’s finest acrobats in a dazzling range of water-soaked

routines and brilliant displays of physicality, performed to an eclectic soundtrack including Sia, Goldfrapp,

Tool, Ben Harper, The Beatles and live musical performances.

The performance delivers 70 minutes of genuine showmanship with seemingly effortless grace. From moments

of divine beauty – a captivating gymnastic display on a bath ledge – to a humorous love story between two feet,

SOAP has captivated the hearts of over 1.5 million people the world over. It’s steamy, funny and absolutely

jaw-dropping but also entirely family friendly.

In January 2017, SOAP celebrates its tenth anniversary having premiered at Berlin’s Chamaeleon Theatre on

January 27, 2007.  

With German/ Canadian puppet artist Nicole Ratjen to performance artists Adem Endris from Ethiopia and

Russian Liudmila Nikolaeva, as well as American performers Daniel Stern and aerial acrobat Lena Ries, the company is as diverse as the audiences it has enthralled.   Some of those artists have been with the company

since inception, many for several years and joining them on tour for the first time is Swiss performer

Mario Español, who attended Berlin’s prestigious Acrobatic State School.
