Circus, street and theatre performance show Soho will have its world premiere in the West End at the Peacock Theatre in May.
Soho – just one word conjures up London’s world famous district full of sounds, vibes and its unique buzz: a place filled with gloriously diverse characters. Soho – it’s not just a place, it’s a state of mind….
Soho’s seriously crazy and multi-talented international cast tell the fast-paced story of a young man’s walk on the wild side, as the colourful characters he meets reveal an unexpected and darkly fantastical world, where glamour and sleaze rub shoulders.
Soaring aerial acrobatics on moving trapezes take the energetic world class performers on a rollercoaster ride. With the pulsating sound of the underground, and the music scene that is Soho’s heartbeat – 21st century indie, buskers, the burlesque of the 50s, the 60s love and peace Carnaby Street generation, disco and punk of the 70s, Cool Britannia pop of the 80s and rave of the 90s – Soho has the iconic soundtrack that is…. Soho.
A thrill ride of circus, street and theatre performance, re-creating the exciting, edgy and voyeuristic world of London’s Soho, the show is created by rock’n’roll global power house Stufish, and plays at West End’s Peacock Theatre from Saturday 6-Saturday 20 May 2017, with a press night on Wednesday 10 May at 7.30pm.
Soho celebrates every inch of the magical square mile, with state-of-the-art multi-layered projections and visuals: from China Town, Gay Pride, the underground, Bar Italia and Theatreland to Madame Jo Jo’s, models’ doorbells, strip clubs, bars and its vibrant streets and dark alleys.
