The Edinburgh Fringe One-Weeker 2019 – Rouge, 22nd August 2019

RougeNext is one of those adult circus/burlesque shows that Edinburgh seems to do so well, it’s Highwire Entertainment’s Rouge, at Underbelly’s Circus Hub on the Meadows – The Beauty, at 21:50 on Thursday 22nd. Here is the blurb: “Circus for grown ups: a decadent blend of sensational acrobatics, operatic cabaret and twisted burlesque. Weeklies winner Best Circus Adelaide Fringe 2018 and Fringeworld 2019. ‘Welcome to a circus for the new age… Brilliant performances covered with rhythm and attitude with a certain aura permeates the venue that embodies the phrase “Filthy and Gorgeous”‘ (WeekendNotes.com). ‘The performance is so high energy, so passionate and executed with such abandon that it can’t help but leave you feeling elated and empowered… if you aren’t turned on by this you might want to consult a physician, because you’re probably clinically dead’ (SmutButtons.com).”

I’m expecting glamour, sauciness and skill; and possibly lots more too. Check back around 11.15 pm to see of my expectations were met. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.

Very slick show, and the acrobatics were extraordinary. A nice feelgood feel to the whole entertainment and yes, it was quite saucy from time to time, but nothing to put you off your dinner. Great stuff!
