a show poster of Barbaroi, a theatre and circus performance


A dystopian world, industrial, cyberpunk in the not-too-distant future. Gangs overrun the neon-clad side streets, the underbelly and outcasts rule the pitch-black forgotten ruins of an old district. There is chaos, there is danger in the shadows. There is a Showdown happening downtown; a lone wanderer stumbles amongst a crew of meta-human misfits, the Barbaroi. Will she have what it takes to be one of them? This is do or die, this is her initiation.

Inspired by the world of shadows where anything goes, and the gritty underbelly of society, BARBAROI is a blend of high octane circus, cabaret and physical theatre. Complimented by finely tuned lighting and special effects, this show will lead audiences down the rabbit-hole and asking, ‘Who are the BARBAROI?’

"Definitely one of the best shows at this year’s Fringe Festival."

society floor show promotional poster


Influenced by the city of New Orleans and its best party on earth, the Mardi Gras, in the past these infamous festivities were hosted by secret societies competing to uphold the most illustrious party in their quarter. Blending Cajun party culture, French exuberance, Creole Voodoo, Masquerade, and breathtaking acrobatics, Society also serves up audiences an extroverted lighting design and unique styled sound track of live music and original tracks. Nothing is off limits in this indulgent Circus Cabaret.

"If every circus act could be like ‘Society’, there could be a real circus renaissance..."

Be greeted by Charlie’s hilarious security before Charlie takes you on a tour of the club, meeting and greeting all of Charlies ‘connections’ and ‘friends’ from shady guys in suits, to floozies that have a little too much to drink.

"After Dark Theatre must be Applauded!"
