Australian Premiere

From the creators that brought you the five star Adelaide Fringe 2016/17 sell-out show BARBU.

Cirque Alfonse return with their newest production, TABARNAK.

Something like a rock-musical, a celebration of Heaven and Hell & everything in between, a fiesta of circus, music and reaching for the sky...all in the inimitable style of Cirque Alfonse.

They embark on an anarchic and poetic ‘way of the cross’, a lively musical circus where the organ takes a riff on the traditional & the acrobatics turn the church pews upside down. And we all come together for a rollicking good time!

“Crque Alfonse ... electrifies once again with this demanding and highly original TABARNAK.” La Presse

“Judging by the audience response at the end of the piece, it seems that their prayers were answered.” La Presse
