Ready to run away with the circus? Award-winning* Rouge circus cabaret makes its WA debut at Fringe World Perth.
(* Winner Best Circus & Physical Theatre Adelaide Fringe 2018).

From the creators of the wildly successful touring production Papillon, Rouge is a decadent blend of sensational acrobatics, operatic cabaret and tongue-in-cheek burlesque. Audiences will be mesmerized by the nonstop tumbling, hooping, swinging, fire-eating, singing and dancing performed by stunning and flexible talent live on stage. A fully loaded celebration of the astonishing and the down right sexy, this is a circus for the grown-ups!

Featuring Isabel Hertaeg (a highly-esteemed international opera singer & cabaret artist), Paul Westbrook (Masters Graduate Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, London), Andre Augustus and Annalise Moore (CircaNica), and Chris Carlos and Jessie McGibbons (NICA graduates). Written and directed by Elena Kirschbaum.

Rouge is set to thrill West Australia audiences in its Perth premiere. Sold out shows and rave reviews from audiences all around Australia will make it a must-see show at this year’s Festival.

Rouge is produced by Highwire Entertainment, a Melbourne-based production house specialising in circus and multi-artform performances and events touring Australia and the world.
