La Clique at Depot MayfieldKristy Stott, Theatre Editor
The internationally acclaimed show – La Clique – featuring the world’s best in circus, new vaudeville and cabaret, has taken over the rooftop of Depot Mayfield in Manchester for 6 weeks – its very first North of England residency.
After years of pop-up success at the Edinburgh Fringe and on London’s South Bank, the world-leading live entertainment company, Underbelly brings its trailblazing and award-winning cheeky adult cabaret show to Manchester. Described as “Cirque de Soleil’s more brash, less inhibited and more naked younger sister” by The New York Times, the show offers a heady cocktail of sexy circus and music.
La Clique will take place on the rooftop at Depot Mayfield inside a beautiful 1920s Spiegeltent. A Spiegeltent is an original ‘mirror tent’, crafted in Belgium during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and designed as a glamorous travelling entertainment venue. Showcasing some of the world’s best circus and cabaret performers, the spectacular show is set to feature aerialist LJ Marles, beloved cabaret artist Chastity Belt, high-flying hair-hanger Miranda Menzies and the multi award-winning circus artist Sam Goodburn, amongst many more performers.
The awe-inspiring performance and stunning Spiegeltent will be accompanied by Underbelly’s signature summer pop-up experience – expect a good-looking outdoor bar and an array of local street food traders – making it the perfect space for alfresco eating and drinking, pre and post-show.
Roll up, roll up! So far La Clique has wowed audiences right across the globe, from New York to Singapore, Melbourne to Montreal. Don’t miss this thrilling show when it swings into Manchester for a limited 6-week run. A super summer-saulting night out.
