Cir­cus

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - Chris Boyd

Ab­sinthe Ab­sinthe is an ex­traor­di­nar­ily pol­ished, dy­namic, bullet-train of a show. And let’s not for­get racy. Our MC, the Gazil­lion­aire, would have to be the most foul­mouthed, of­fen­sive and scin­til­lat­ingly big­oted comic I have en­coun­tered. There are per­form­ers with the most ex­tra­or­di­nary bod­ies do­ing the most ex­tra­or­di­nary things. Be­larus duo Ali­ak­sandr Yurkaveats and An­drew Si­zo­nenko are a def­i­ni­tion of pacy pre­ci­sion in their hor­i­zon­tal bar dou­ble act. Equally im­prob­a­ble is the hand­bal­anc­ing act from Poles Michal To­masz Nowosadko and Zbig­niew So­bier­a­jski. It’s the kind of act one would en­counter in a Bur­lesque Hour show. (Pic­tured, Angie Sylvia per­forms her Fire Bur­lesque.) Hyde Park, Syd­ney. Opens Tues­day. Tick­ets: $65-$136. Book­ings: 1300 795 012 or online. Un­til Oc­to­ber 4.
