The circus got a titillating twist as Cantina’s creatures of the night came out to play.

As darkness fell during the Festival, the temperature was rising in the TelstraClear Festival Club. Scorching with decadent passion, Cantina was a showcase of heart-stopping acrobatic skills, set within a depression-era inspired time of vaudeville, seduction and violence.

From its playful opening, the performance gradually transcended to a more sinister place where glamour increasingly struggled to shine and tortured desires begin to emerge from the shadows. The atmosphere in the Club was completely enveloping, with recorded and live music played on antiquated instruments mixing with dim, moody lighting reminiscent of an underground Chicago bar.

But for all its theatrical ambience, it was the show’s physical feats that remained the highlight. The world-class performers walked tightropes in high heels, literally threw each other around the stage and generally did things with their bodies that nature never intended.

Circus in the rawest, most captivating sense of the word, Cantina’s intoxicating cocktail of skill, danger and sensuality made it one of the Festival's absolute must-sees.
