FRINGE REVIEW: SOAP, GLUTTONY, FEBRUARY 2017

Soap has all the elements you need for a perfect show. With a blend of humour, sexiness, great music and incredible physical theatre, it is a must-see at Adelaide Fringe this year.

Held in The Peacock tent at Gluttony, it was my second time of seeing the circus spectacular and it was even better than I had remembered it to be.

The show opens with the cast performing acrobatics in bathtubs wearing their tighty-whiteys to “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley so you know you’re in for a good time from the get-go.

From there you are taken on a ride through various acts. There’s juggling, opera singing, contortionists, strip tease, contemporary dance, trapeze artistry and more. The variety of performances keeps you guessing throughout the show.

The highlight for me involved a man performing death-defying stunts in a bathtub filled with water and soundtracked by Tool. It was completely captivating. You will be awestruck at how it is physically possible.

There’s never a dull moment in Soap, with interludes between the more elaborate performances filled with audience interaction and skits with wacky comedy.

Suitable for all ages, Soap is a splish-splashing good time.
