Nakedness, Juggling and a big black man in a Zebra Suit!

I’ve just come back from a weekend in Dublin where I got to see the final show of La Clique at the famous Spiegeltent. The Spiegeltent isn’t fringe enough for the Dublin Fringe Festival, so they’re not bringing it back next year, but after floating away at 5 in the morning from the backstage area, I remembered that I’d promised the lads – a confetti of circus performers – that I’d come and see them in Paris

And this is exactly what I intend to do – La Clique will be kicking off a 6 month run in Paris from September – including a Christmas day show – for all those pagans, who like me, can’t stand the Chrissy faff of turkey and pretending to like your relatives.

If you’ve never experienced this show, I reckon Paris is the perfect place to do so – between Captain Frodo the Norwegian Contortionist, La Gateau Chocolat the finest specimen in a Zebra outfit and Ursula Martinez’s disappearing red hanky – yes it really goes up there! Paris will never be the same again.

Follow it up by drinks at The Experimental Cocktail Club a late shuffle down to La Feline- the hang out for bemused burlesque girls, and then the only place to lay your head, or some part of your anatomy is in one of Paris’ numerous Love Hotels

This is the kind of weekend that would get you arrested in most countries – I’ll see you there.
