Review: Elixir

Head First Acrobats
Underbelly Circus Hub on the Meadows,  Aug 9-13, 15-20, 22-26

5 Stars (5 / 5)

Before the performance commences, the stage already hints at what is in store for the audience. Set in a huge science laboratory, Elixir begins with three scientists ingesting various chemicals to discover the ultimate body-enhancing human elixir. What follows next is an hour and a half of excitement, gravity-defying stunts, true tests of human strength and muscularity, and surprise after surprise that will definitely keep audiences entertained. However, this show is not for all ages. The performers are cheeky and sexy and not afraid to get up close and personal with audience members with their sweaty, slippery bodies, during and after the show.

With 90 minutes of full-on energy, comedy and eye candy, Elixir could very well be the show of the Fringe.
