"A must see show of epic proportions"


Spiegelworld Presents
EMPIRE
World's Most Outrageous Spiegeltent Show

Straight from its sell-out season on Broadway New York comes Empire, a 21st century theatrobatic adventure. Imagine a twisted version of Alice in Wonderland and at the other end of the rabbit hole is Empire, an extraordinary performance of acrobats, musicians, comedians and performers that will leave you awestruck and laughing from this strange burlesque circus. Consider it the darker and sexier psyche of Cirque du Soleil as these performers entertain you under the Spiegeltent in this intimate venue of cabaret, acrobatics and contortion.

Although the Sydney season of Empire has concluded, Melbournites still have until the 12th of May to experience this must see spectacular with Brisbane hosting the final shows in Australia. The Brisbane dates for Empire commence on the 24th of May and conclude on the 16th of June. So what exactly is Empire? According to Spiegelworld, Empire is a love letter from New York City that brings together a stellar cast of international performers on a 3 metre diameter stage.

Running at around 90 minutes, viewers can expect a night to remember with the presentation hosted by Oscar and Fanny. This comic duo will leave you in stitches as they perform this weird courtship amongst themselves and even one lucky VIP audience member. From a quick change magic routine that goes horribly wrong to Oscar and Fanny performing a banana spit trick that is not only quite disgusting but one of the funniest things I have ever witnessed, these two definitely help warm up the crowd.

Empire is also a celebration of the human body and some of the amazing feats that it can achieve such as Russian gymnast Elena Lev who performs an astonishing acrobatic and contortion act inside a bubble that is raised above the audience. Then we have the French gymnasts, Lime Green Lady and Carrot Man who beautifully perform this erotic ballet with the utmost strength and flexibility. Another gymnast act are the Gorilla Girls from the Ukraine, Kateryna Rudenko, Alina Reutska and Alona Stekolnikova who perform this sexy burlesque acrobatic act that defies physics and strength.

The Japanese artist known as the Wheel Master  leaves the audience awestruck from his gigantic hula hoop to a giant metal wheel as he manages to use it like a monkey bar rolling within in the small confines of the stage. There are so many highlights in Empire that choosing a favourite is virtually impossible like Ethiopian foot juggler Black Flintstone spinning and tossing his brother Big Mac Boy in the air is truly insane to watch as are the two skaters. The show ends with a deft defying performance by the "Stick Guy", Memet Bilgin who somehow manages to balance a feather on a dozen or so long sticks which will leave you mesmerised. The concentration and skill required by Memet is unbelievable.

Final Thoughts?

Empire is a must see performance that can be enjoyed by the intimacy of the Spiegeltent that is a celebration of femininity, masculinity and sexuality which is accompanied by the live music of Miss Purple with guitarist Moondog plus the awesome comedy of Oscar and Fanny. Just be warned that Empire can be a little crude and even rude with some unexpected nudity! It's a must see show of epic proportions!
