Sydney Festival Presents: Shanghai Mimi
An intoxicating night of song, acrobatics and hot jazz set in the melting pot of 1930s Shanghai.
This event has now passed.
Dress to the nines and immerse yourself in the intoxicating world of Shànghǎi MiMi上海咪咪, a sumptuous cabaret of delights.
Inspired by 1930s Shanghai, a city famous for its flamboyant clubs and heady nights, Shànghǎi MiMi上海咪咪 parts the curtains on an enchanted world.
Directed by internationally acclaimed performer and director Moira Finucane, whose ground-breaking cabarets enrapture audiences from Beijing to Berlin, the performance stars Qinghai Acrobatic Troupe from beyond the Gobi desert and a hotshot live band playing long-lost vintage Chinese jazz and blues unearthed in a condemned Mumbai warehouse.
Meanwhile, dancers, acrobats, aerialists and singers from China, Cameroon, Australia and France give thrilling performances: flying overhead, dazzling your eyes and winning your hearts.
Running Time: 70 Minutes
The risky stuff: Haze, minimal nudity
Latecomers may be allowed into the performance at a suitable time.
