The award winning hit show from the 2015 Adelaide Fringe Festival returns in the Spiegeltent: Garden Of Unearthly Delights, from 12 February 2016 for a strictly limited season. After winning the bankSA Pick Of The Fringe and The Advertiser Best Of The Fringe Awards in 2015, VELVET played sell-out seasons at the Edinburgh Fringe, Brisbane Festival and at the Sydney Opera House.
Director Craig Ilott has created a hedonistic world, pitting dazzling acrobatics against disco divas as this sexy, spectacular, sparkling and slightly sadomasochistic show channels the original Studio 54 nightclub. Singer/songwriter Brendan Maclean again heads the cast in this party like no other, alongside an international ensemble of circus, cabaret and music talent: dreamy muscle man Stephen Williams, hula boy extraordinaire Craig Reid, acrobatic wunderkind Mirko Köckenberger, sizzling aerialist Emma Goh, sassy sirens Chaska Halliday and Rechelle Mansour, musical director and mix master Joe Accaria and the legendary diva Marcia Hines.
When a young ingénue (Brendan Maclean) slips behind the red velvet rope at the glamorous nightclub that is VELVET, he encounters dazzling acrobatics, disco divas, seductive chanteuses and a hot, pulsating atmosphere. It changes him and empowers him! The performance follows his seduction and his transformation.
VELVET shocks, surprises and scintillates at every turn. It’s a party, it’s dangerous, it’s electrifying, and it’s exhilarating disco soundtrack never lets up from the opening moment. Each performance invites the audience into an intoxicating glitterball world where the performers and the audience walk the fine line between the romantic and the audacious. VELVET is a fantastic sensory overload – funky, fresh, fun and sexy.
