SCOTCH & SODA FEATURING THE UNCANNY CARNIVAL BAND
International sensation Scotch & Soda returns to The Judy in November for a cocktail of physical feats and jazz beats performed by daredevil acrobats and mesmerising musicians. Scotch & Soda was the stand-out hit of the 2014 Brisbane Festival, so don’t miss this spectacular return season. Tickets are available now from www.judithwrightcentre.com
Scotch & Soda is a heady mixer of risk-taking circus skill and rip-roaring humour, with a chaser of flair and originality. The heartbeat is the Uncanny Carnival Band, a rumpled troupe who underscore the action with their toe-tapping fusion of jazz and music hall. Featuring fresh top-shelf tricks, it’s time you tried Scotch & Soda!
Some of Australia’s most thrilling acrobats (including Company 2’s Chelsea McGuffin and David Carberry) are joined by Ben Walsh and the Uncanny Carnival Band a whiskey-infused evening of raucous dance and dexterous feats, in a show that has astounded audiences at the the Dublin Fringe Festival, The London Wonderground, the Edinburgh Christmas Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Sydney Festival.
Channeling the vibe of a rowdy speakeasy from a bygone era, SCOTCH AND SODA makes the perfect aperitif for an extraordinary evening.
“SCOTCH AND SODA is a blast. A delicious cocktail of daring circus with a theatrical twist and gypsy-soaked sound is shaken and stirred into a show served up by a team of people having as much fun as the audiences we perform for. It really makes you just want to stand up and get your groove on. An artist said to me it’s a show that ‘audiences love and every performer wants to be in.’”
