BARBU Electro Trad Cabaret

Circus • Cabaret

Bold, absurd, and sexy as hell, BARBU conjures a strange and wonderful world, fusing traditional and contemporary circus with a beautiful irreverence.

The most talked about show of Adelaide Fringe 2016, BARBU is at once hilarious, audacious, surreal and spectacular. Performed by one of the world's leading circus companies Canada's Cirque Alfonse. BARBU delivers edge-of-your-seat entertainment set to a thundering electro-trad soundtrack from the skilful and frenetic live band. May the best beard win.

“The most fun you’ll have in a tent this year… I’ll confess to having seen BARBU twice already, and the chances of me making it to the end of the Fringe without a return visit are slim” The Scotsman

“Joyously naughty, laugh-out-loud witty and unpretentiously camp” The Times

“A show of sheer strength” Evening Standard

“An entirely new circus concept… Refreshingly ridiculous and comfortingly casual” Upside News
