Although the Underbelly Festival Southbank of 2018 started this weekend, my first taste will not be until next month, when I head to The Spiegeltent for Soap – a fusion of water and acrobatics, soap and opera! Yes some good clean fun!
The German Circus, SOAP, whose breath-taking fusion of world-class acrobatics and water will make sure that never think of bath time the same way again, will be splashing around The Spiegeltent from Thursday 3 May to Sunday 17 June 2018.
For the first time SOAP is performing in the round, to create a splash-filled and riotously fun new spectacular; as the seriously crazy and multi-talented international cast splish-splash through aerial, trapeze, juggling, mop ballets and a spectacular rainy finale – in, on, above and around bathtubs filled with….water! Plus SOAP‘s silly slippery comedy, including their cheeky female clown.
SOAP’s live music and electric soundtrack includes: The Doors, Sia, Tool, Gnarls Barkley, Goldfrapp, Beethoven, Mozart and The Beatles – and singing live, is the Soap Opera Diva (Jennifer Lindshield – Carnegie Hall, NYC) – taking singing in the bath to a whole new level!
SOAP has already captivated the hearts of over a million spectators around the globe
Suitable for all ages… It’s good clean circus fun!
