Young, newly formed Adelaide troupe Cirque Nocturne are appearing at the Empyrean at Gluttony until March 5th.

Aiming for a film noir aesthetic they present various circus style acts including hoop twirling, juggling, acrobatics, and trapeze.  The stand out performance is a skilled demonstration of fire twirling which is well coordinated with the music and during which the overly bright lights are thankfully dimmed.

The incorporation of some self-deprecating humour wouldn’t go astray in this somewhat serious and self-conscious show.

The concept is interesting and with more development, appropriate lighting, and practice,  the show could come together better as the season progresses.
