On a boring Friday, Alwyn watched a 30min free performance show at Martin Place for Spieglworld Empire. He texted us and said it is sooo good (as compared to the ones we’ve watched @ Darlinghurst)…and was checking if they had tickets at nite….(we did think of going to it last year)
To keep things short, we got the ticket and to the show at night.
What is Empire? circus, an act, show, whatever…go read up on it at http://www.empireaustralia.com/the-show/
What can i say? It’s pretty good and I liked it…would’ve great if it was longer. 90min seemed to fly by too quickly!
The best performance? Umm…well, the singer…just too good, man…singing different genre of songs, or just vocals…ignored watching the show a couple of times to listen n watch her…haha.
I read up on the singer just now, and she’s Miss Purple (aka Lena Hall)
The bubble thingy was quite pretty and would’ve made some spectacular photography. The performaner was quite flexible…is she the same one with the hoola hoops? Quite good.
The MCs (a husband and wife, as they introduced) were funny too….occassionaly disgusting…
memorable acts though
– the guy was naked…saw more of him than we expected to see!
– he licked the head of a few balding men sitting in front
– they bit pieces of banana and spat it out to each others mouth. towards the end, they ‘exchanged’ mashed up banana to each other…ewwww…like crapping to the person’s mouth!
– the girl did sorta a mock strip tease, lap dance to this guy from the audience. n then the other male MC appeared…in a dress…saying, what u doing to my wife, etc etc…sat on the poor guy, and kissed him (deeply) on the mouth…hahah..was hilarious
what else? umm..the last performance was a guy who balanced things. so, he balanced a feather on a stick that then was balanced on another stick/branch and so on..in the end, the whole structure was balanced onto a vertical stick. Quite a long performance, and do require quite abit of concentration and strength…and from their website, he was a computer programmer!
That’s it, folks!…it’s too late at nite for me to remember more…
