About this event

A cirque sensation that has sold out seasons all around the world, Elixir is a vibrant crowd-pleaser, as shown by their innumerable five-star reviews and thousands of satisfied fans.

Set in a huge science laboratory, Elixir begins with three scientists ingesting various chemicals to discover the ultimate body-enhancing human elixir. Equal parts funny, sexy, charming and raucous, this show is a full serve of dynamic circus, on-point hilarity, and no-holds-barred steamy brinkmanship.

An absolute cracker of a circus show, with multiple awards including the Overall best Circus Adelaide Fringe award 2018. Come see the boys and you'll feel the heat, see the sweat and won't believe your eyes.
