Le Cirque Invisible at the Queen Elizabeth Hall - 2 Aug
Le Cirque Invisible , at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre , central London, from 2 to 21 Aug 2011.

And their clowning humour, playful tricks, acrobatics and transformations have an infectious sense of fun that is suitable for adults and children alike."
"The show features an intricate stream of quirky acts including Thierree’s surreal interpretation of Au fond du temple saint from Bizet’s Pearl Fishers in which his painted kneecaps look like two singing tenors and Victoria’s music making out of a collection of glasses and bowls strapped to her body, plus elements of traditional circus including tight-rope and unicycle numbers."
