FRINGE REVIEW: BLANC DE BLANC ENCOREFORTUNA SPIEGELTENT, THE GARDEN OF UNEARTHLY DELIGHTS 2020

A riot of lights, colour and glamour, Blanc de Blanc Encore takes you on a dizzying journey through the Moulin Rouge, the seedy backstreets of 1930s Paris and the vaudeville circuit, all from the comfort of the stunning Fortuna Spiegeltent.

In this glossy, chaotic and well-crafted 90 minutes, Blanc de Blanc Encore‘s nine impossibly beautiful and talented international artists, adorned in sequins and feathers—and occasionally little else—sang, danced and writhed their way through a sexy, slick and polished performance that brought down the full house on a rainy Sunday night.

While some of the more ludicrous jokes seemed forced—jarringly gauche in between truly magical performances, they had a few audience members squirming uncomfortably in their seats—the aerial work was mesmerising, the choreography was flawless, and the costuming, to die for.

If you are gagging for a bawdy night out and want to leave your inhibitions at the door, Blanc de Blanc Encore is the show for you. A lavish display of glitz and breathtaking skill, Blanc de Blanc Encore is a raucous experience where laughter and lasciviousness is masterfully interwoven with genuine artistry. A must-see at this year’s Adelaide Fringe.

So pop the bubbly, grab your glass and strap yourself in for a wild night. Blanc de Blanc Encore runs until 15 March, and you can snap up your ticket here.
