Part of the inaugural season of The Spiegeltent Wollongong
A divine discotheque circus!
08 Apr – 30 Apr
Welcome to Wonderland…Boogie Wonderland! Slip behind the red velvet rope to visit a glitter ball world of fantastic sensory overload!
VELVET is a seductive fusion of disco, dance and circus that will take you on an electrifying journey to a world of glamour and abandon. Loosely inspired by Studio 54, and staring an international ensemble including legendary diva Marcia Hines, this is a raucous party with an exhilarating disco soundtrack that never lets up.
Having dazzled audiences around the globe, VELVET arrives to headline the greatly anticipated inaugural Spiegeltent Wollongong season in the stunning 1920s Aurora Spiegeltent. Travelling from its home in Belgium to adorn the Arts Precinct, the ‘mirror tent’ will house not only VELVET but dozens of other events.
The full Spiegeltent Wollongong program, jam packed with the very best in comedy, cabaret, burlesque and music will be announced in early 2017. With the best seats for VELVET available first to Merrigong Season Ticket Holders, don’t miss the disco inferno that is VELVET, where every second entices you into a world of fun, funk and glamour!
“A show that’s big, brash, noisy and buckets of fun. The audience is whipped into a frenzy of disco glitterball nostalgia.” - The Guardian (UK)
“This stunner of a show is nothing less than a pure endorphin rush. The feelings of freedom and joy that characterised the disco world of the 1970s are distilled, intensified, and pumped up into one heck of a blast from the past. Put this show on your must-see list.” - Stage Whispers
“It’s a discotheque extravaganza like I’ve never seen. From the second I entered the theatre it was clear something special was about to happen… A full 80 minutes of wonder… cabaret, acrobatics and burlesque embellished by an energy that drips through the audience.” - Aspire Magazine
