Wonderland Spiegeltent



The Wonderland Spiegeltent is a saucy little minx. Intimate, dimly lit, scantily clad performers literally in your face. There’s a lot to like about it. Like stumbling drunkenly into a 19th century bootleg salon, the Wonderland Spiegeltent transports you to an indulgent, delightfully wicked time. Step inside her velvet curtains into a world of decadence steeped in the darkest of smoky jazz, moody blues and good ol’ fashioned cabaret.

Wonderland Spiegeltent, the beautiful 1930s nostalgic wooden mirrored travelling European circus tent, is coming back to Port Douglas Carnivale. For 10 days over Carnivale 2019, step inside the bevelled doors of the Wonderland Spiegeltent as they bring their spectacular program of live entertainment including circus, cabaret, comedy, burlesque, music and family shows.

Exactly how much is possible on a stage less than four metres in diameter? The Wonderland Spiegeltent proves the possibilities are endless as it hijacks Port Douglas following its sold-out run at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. From seductive sword-swallowers to topless tap-dancers, bubble-gum-wielding burlesque artists and a 7 foot tall ginger drag queen, the Wonderland Spiegeltent is guaranteed to leave audiences breathless as the performers twirl their way through sex, skill and slapstick. In fact, this year’s headline act Limbo Up Close comes with promises of ‘scintillating sexiness that will take you to a grittier place than you’ve ever been before’.

Bold, beautiful and frequently hilarious, this season’s circus-meets-cabaret-meets-vaudeville extravaganza should take top priority on your Port Douglas Carnivale to do list.
