Limbo at return of London Wonderground

Published 18 February 2013

Coney Island will return to the Southbank this summer when London Wonderground opens its doors for a five month residence in May with headline show Limbo providing the eclectic entertainment.

Limbo comes from the creators of last year’s hit production Cantina and promises a similar exotic mix of cabaret, circus and acrobatics. Following its premiere later this month at the Adelaide Festival, the show will head straight to London to play from 7 May to 29 September.

Underbelly and the Southbank Centre’s creation, London Wonderground, took over part of the Southbank last year for the first time and will once again be presented in a 1920s inspired Spiegeltent. As with Cantina, the line-up for Limbo offers an exciting mix of performances to, according to the show, “seduce audiences with a celebration of otherworldly proportions” with a mix of music and magic.

Said music will be provided by New York’s Sxip Shirey and musicians Grant Arthur and Mick Stuart, while the magic will come from UK illusionist Paul Kieve, who is no stranger to London theatre having lent his magical touch to West End shows Matilda The Musical and Ghost The Musical.

Adding to the line-up will be sword swallowing from Heather Holliday and mind-boggling acrobats from Jonathan Nosan, Mikael Bres, Hilton Denis and Danik Abishev.

Scott Maidment, the show’s director, commented on the announcement, saying: “I’m really excited to bring together this international array of renowned performers and outstanding technical minds to present a thrillingly unique hour of illusion and fun. It’s a delight to be able to share this new production with London audiences after its sell out opening season in Australia.”
