Headlining at Underbelly Festival Southbank 2018 The Spiegeltent

Water, water everywhere as the slick, wet, headliner German Circus SOAP, splashes into The Spiegeltent at Underbelly Festival Southbank from Thursday 3 May – Sunday 17 June 2018.

Hot, wet, funny and very sexy, SOAP is a breath-taking fusion of world-class acrobatics and water – bath time will never be the same again!

For the first time SOAP is performing in the round, to create a splash-filled and riotously fun new spectacular; as the seriously crazy and multi-talented international cast splish-splash through aerial, trapeze, juggling, mop ballets and a spectacular rainy finale – in,

on, above and around bathtubs filled with….water! Plus SOAP‘s silly slippery comedy, includingtheir cheeky female clown.

SOAP’s live music and electric soundtrack includes: The Doors, Sia, Tool, Gnarls Barkley, Goldfrapp, Beethoven, Mozart and The Beatles – and singing live, is the Soap Opera Diva (Jennifer Lindshield – Carnegie Hall, NYC) – taking singing in the bath to a whole new level!

As bodies get wet and physical the frothy clean fun begins! (Suitable for all ages.)

SOAP has already captivated the hearts of over a million spectators around the globe and is directed by Markus Pabst and Maximilian Rambaek. SOAP production by Reinhard Bichsel, Base Berlin. Cast includes: Vanessa Alvarez (Antipode – Spain), Anton Belyakov (Handstand – Russia), Adem Endris (Bouncing – Ethiopia), Moritz Haase (Trapeze – Germany), Marie-Andrée Lemaire (Comedy – Canada), Jennifer Lindshield (Opera – USA), Lena Ries (Contortion – Germany), Daniel Stern (Straps – USA).

SOAP – celebrating all things circus in The Spiegeltent – is just a splash away from the Thames, and the actual birthplace of circus 250 years ago!

SOAP Soaks Southbank! – a breath-taking fusion of world-class acrobatics and water – bath time will never be the same again!

Suitable for all ages… It’s good clean circus fun!
