Hosted by local comedian Mel Jones and Piky Pokus from Argentina, Enchanted Cirque offers guests the chance to enjoy an evening of spectacular performances, gourmet grub, and bubbles (not only for consumption, but for your entertainment, too).
Smoke and Mirrors
A genuine 450-seater spiegeltent (Dutch for “mirror tent”) has been shipped all the way from Belgium, and will include an interactive zone, a traditional beerhouse bar, and a VIP oyster-and-bubbly booth. Plus, there’ll be a selection of delectable small plates and platters designed for sharing on offer during the show, so you won’t have to watch on an empty stomach.
The line-up of exotic and elaborate performance artists includes light-play by the laserman, whimsical bubble artistry from the bubble-ologist (yes, this is a real job for some lucky oke!), spellbinding aerial artist on poles, swings and trapezes right over the audience, and a seductive crossbow contortionist – all supported musically by local songstress Noa Milan and soul-singer Ashtavhaan Mintoor.
Following the two-hour show (that’s produced and directed by Sebastian Cassie), audience members are welcome to join the cast at the afterparty, where the resident DJ will be pumping out tunes late into the night.
