"It's a fast-paced, uplifiting and eccentric show and the breathtaking skill of the performers needs to be seen to be believed."
Limbo is a thrilling and eclectic show made up of short performances by multi-talented musicians, dancers, acrobats and other characters who most probably ran away from the circus.
Staged in the magical Spiegeltent, there couldn't be a more perfect venue for this whimsical performance reminiscent of La Clique, and with all the sexiness and eccentricity of France, where several of the performers hail from.
The highly skilled troupe wow the crowd with cabaret, acrobatics, contorting, balancing, fire-breathing and nail-bitingly risky acts. There's tiny but busty Heather Holliday who oozes sex appeal but breaks stereotypes by half swallowing swords, contortionist Aurelien Oudot whose bendiness causes jaws to drop, the cheeky smiles and tapdancing of Hilton Denis, an edge of the seat performance on a Chinese pole from Mikael Bres chasing a single white feather, and a mesmerising suspended hoop performance from the sultry Evelyne Allard. Danik Abishev's perfectly precise hand balancing act draws nervous murmurs from the crowd.

The most fun part of the night comes when the performers strap themselves into tall, bendy poles and virtually fly around the Spiegelent, meeting in the centre then flinging back to where the crowd sits with impeccable timing.
Talented musician Elyas Khan, dressed in a white suit and top hat, provides the background music through the show with an array of whacky instruments and the siren of a megaphone. It's a fast-paced, uplifiting and eccentric show and the breathtaking skill of the performers needs to be seen to be believed.
