NYU Skirball will welcome in the New Year with Barbu Electro Trad Cabaret, a New York premiere from Québec's Cirque Alfonse.
Barbu Electro Trad Cabaret is a bellyful of cheeky humor and brazen eccentricity. It's a circus for adult audiences — exceptionally strong men and women delivering edge-of-your-seat adult entertainment set to a rollicking soundtrack from a frenetic live band. Direct from Canada, Cirque Alfonse is famed for shows that explore the edges of contemporary circus. Barbu creates a strange and wonderful world, straddling old traditions with a modern edge — a wildly exuberant night out at the circus.
