Spiegelworld presents EMPIRE, a true vaudeville experience
After unanimous rave reviews, sold out performances and standing ovations in New York and across Australia, Spiegelworld is proud to bring its all-new show EMPIRE to Toronto starting September 1, 2015.
Produced by Spiegelworld and presented by evenko, EMPIRE smashes the boundaries of circus, cabaret, variety and burlesque, reinventing the genres for a 21st century audience. Making its debut in New York City as the first tented show in Times Square in 2012, the 700-seat antique Spiegeltent, complete with beveled mirrors, plus velvet-upholstered seating booths, speak-easy style bar and the most intimate stage in town will host the most jaw-dropping and outrageous night out of the year!
EMPIRE is a 90-minute adventure performed by the greatest international talent ever assembled in one tent. The MCs, Oscar and Fanny, steer the show while an eccentric cast of characters help Oscar rebuild his empire; the seductive Gorilla Girls from Ukraine form perfectly balanced pyramids on top of each other; the Ethiopian foot juggler Black Flintstone throws and impossibly catches his brother Big Mac Boy on his feet.
Other performers include the duo, Lime Green Lady and Carrot Man who beautifully and sensuously balance each other, the Half Naked Asian Dude Wearing Pigtails from Japan is the world champion wheelmaster, rolling dangerously past the audience; Miss A in a Bubble contorts gracefully inside an aerial sphere and the 3D Graffiti Guy from Canada creates amazing structures, anchored entirely on a feather. Miss Purple is the resident vocalist, backed by the music of the Viking of 6th Avenue, Moondog.
EMPIRE will be making its first Canadian stop in Montreal in April, and from there will be heading across Canada with shows in Quebec City, Ottawa, and Toronto before wrapping up in Vancouver.
