A Lavish Party set in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Rocking a full live band, talented performers inside the beautiful Wonderland Spiegeltent SOCIETY is a ton of fun! If you like flips, tricks, circus routines, song and dance then this is the party to attend.

A robust group dynamic with strong physically able preformers, After Dark Theatre really go for it in this variety circus piece.

Tully was the standout with a very impressive bottle and stick routine which he followed with a second display of skill by expertly spinning two scales filled with water joined by a rope at each end. Progressively pulling off harder and harder tricks without spilling the contents. Even when the rest of the talented crew were on stage he maintained a powerful contagious energy with 100% commitment and focus the true sign of a skilled collaborative performer.

There were some gaps between the action but the joy of the work and its inclusive nature kept the juggling ball in the air. The upbeat energy and throws to the talented band and singer helped showcase the circus routines well. A very sensual two women tissue routine followed by a dance involving glowing naked bodies elevates the show to an adults only experience.

Running throughout Melbourne Fringe at the Wonderland Spiegeltent, the venue is not quite at "Fed Square" as listed but a couple hundred meters down the road with popcorn, fairy floss and a stocked bar the scene it set.

If you enjoy circus and a good night out make sure you are a part of this Society
