Empire

The highlight is 3D Graffiti Guy from Canada who creates a massive structure that all come back to one feather.

Empire on the Crown rooftop is a location that requires no trace of vertigo. This modern day circus entertains with a smorgasbord of acts  from MC's Oscar and Fanny who re-invigorate the often over-used Quick Change. Martin Kinnane's lighting design sculpts the action on stage perfectly, particularly during contortionist Miss A's act, as bubbles surround us we're mesmerized (more so by the bubbles and light than her).

The highlight is 3D Graffiti Guy from Canada who creates a massive structure that all come back to one feather. This closing act is a risky choice as it slows down the show that has  been punnchy  till now, but 3D Graffiti Guy who drips sweat by the conclusion is so impressive that were on our feet. Sure Empire is circus sexed up, but these performers make you go wow, oh and aw at the same time.
