Bubble Show For Adults Only
Published 19 Feb 2018

Mix one part physical theatre, one part bubble artistry and one part neo-burlesque, and you get a soapy concoction of kinky in-your-face theatrics that is Bubble Show for Adults Only.

A raucous and raunchy affair with a surprising story arc full of abstractness and the slightly grotesque, Bubble Show is also a surreal performative experience that wonderfully showcases the technical prowess of bubble art on a first-class level.

The silliness used to propel the show’s dialogue-free narrative is perhaps translatable from the performers' background as children’s entertainers – information that could either turn you on or turn you off. Either way it is obvious these two performers have honed their craft at bubble art and bendy acrobatics.

However, the creative execution of the interwoven story of two lovers in a will-they-won’t-they tangle panders more to the bizarre than the normative, and will no doubt leave some audience members in a haze of sexual confusion.

Bubble Show for Adults Only might take the sexiness out of sex, but it doesn’t take the fun out of it.
