Deliciously retro and absolutely original, Cirque Le Roux delves into a smoky monochrome world of circus arts, Hollywood film noir and physical theatre. Welcome to the luxurious estate of Miss Betty, in autumn 1937. Caught between her desperate husband, a fumbling valet and a lustful admirer, our hostess slips away from her wedding reception into a secluded smoking lounge. Cigars, whisky, slapstick and remarkable acrobatics culminate into a turbulent amorous intrigue. Hidden amongst the darkly decadent ambiance, obscured by quarrels and false pretenses, is an elephant in the room that’s taking up more and more space.
“The Elephant in the Room is a mesmerising blend of circus, dance and physical theatre merged with a little film noir. This intriguing circus show is hilarious and entertaining, with a fast paced and gripping narrative to keep you on edge.” – Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
