Barbu Electro Trad Cabaret, a New York premiere, is a bellyful of cheeky humor and brazen eccentricity. It's a circus of 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.
Cirque Alfonse's blend of arts and circus techniques is rooted in the traditions of their Québec home. The company was founded in 2014 by the Carabinier Lepine family and acrobats who have performed with some of the world's renowned "nouveau cirque" companies, including Les 7 doigts de la main, Cirque du Soleil, and Cirkus Cirkör. The company has toured the USA as well as Europe, Australia, and Asia.
Note: This show is recommended for ages 16 and up.
