A thrilling cirque experience coming to Cape Town.
A thrilling new international cirque production, Enchanted, opens 1 September 2017 in Green Point, Cape Town. Produced and directed by Sebastian Cassie, presented by Showcasting and proudly supported by KFM94.5, Enchanted will merge some of the world’s finest entertainment artists with a top South African creative team.
Enchanted runs for a limited season into mid October 2017 and is billed as a thrilling cirque production with mesmerising acts that have never been seen before in South Africa, performed in a beautiful 450 seater spiegeltent, shipped directly from Belgium and constructed by renowned Belgian tent master Rik Klessens. Elements within include an interactive zone, VIP bars serving premium brands, an oyster and bubbly booth, an accessory store and delicious fare, making this a truly decadent night out in the Mother City.
Hosted by top South African comedienne Mel Jones and Piky Pokus from Argentina, super star acts lined up include crossbow contortionist and silk artist Orissa Kelly, cloud swing and hoop artist Tom McKinnon, laser and bubble magic man Thomas Favaro, a disco inspired roller skating pair, a heart stopping knife throwing duo, and many more.
The magic unfolds the moment glamorous guests step inside the opulent venue to be greeted by quirky Enchanted artists, setting the tone for a fabulous night out. After feasting on tasty tapas platters and enjoying the two-hour show, the resident DJ will take over and the audience can party with the cast, late into the night.
Enchanted brings the best of the outstanding spiegeltent shows that have preceded it, with a solid emphasis on incredible artistry. All of the artists are international, world-class performers, and the show has an engaging narrative running throughout in the style of nouveau-cirque productions. It’s ‘cirque’ redefined, in an intimate setting with a fabulous service offering.
Showcasting is headed up by Sebastian Cassie and Michael Carrigan, the driving force behind this world-class cirque production. Having been involved in some of Australasia’s most successful circus shows, musical theatre and stage productions, the dynamic team have set up a local office in South Africa, uniting artists from around the globe and bringing a world class entertainment offering to SA. Says Sebastian, who hails from Cape Town and grew up in New Zealand, “having the opportunity to bring this enchanting and unique production to my home country is a dream fulfilled”.
