Encapsulates the seductive atmosphere of a classic Noir film of the 1940s, Cirque Nocturne bring their sensual circus to Adelaide Fringe.

Audiences are invited to join a down-on-his-luck cynical Private Investigator as he navigates his way through a cast of sensuous femme fatales, seedy characters and corrupt cops, and struggles to solve the crime, find love, and most importantly, get paid.

Dark, moody and atmospheric, accompanied by a soundtrack of period and contemporary jazz, Cirque Nocturne plays at Gluttony this Fringe.

We had a chat with Kate Lawrence from the company who says the show has developed significantly since its inception.

“This is the fourth time we’ve run the show. We’ve developed it to give it more of a narrative – more of a storyline – as well as having the physical circus act. We’ve got hula hoopers, pole dancers, aerialists, fire spinners and jugglers. All of the circus,” she laughs.

“They are mostly Adelaide based, but we’ve actually got our first international performer coming in. So, we’ve got an Irish juggler flying over especially. So, that’s something quite special.”

Having performed at various venues, Kate says she is looking forward to bumping in to Gluttony because it’s friendly and communal.

“I really like the community of Gluttony. It just seems like a great big family. All of the performers, the tech and even the audience, to an extent. It just feels like a great big party family,” she says.
