The Carnival of Lost Souls

The Carnival of Lost Souls


November 16 - 18, 2017

Reginald Theatre, Seymour Centre, Cleveland St
Sydney, NSW



Dare to enter the dark and magical world of a 19th century circus as The Carnival of Lost Souls tours to Sydney November, leaving a dizzying path of mystery and mayhem for audiences along the way. Nestled somewhere between the madness of a Tim Burton psychosis and the darkness of a David Lynch nightmare, The Carnival of Lost Souls tells the tragic tale of unrequited love & loss set amongst the splendour of a Victorian-era circus. Featuring some of Australia’s best physical entertainers, musicians & singers, this uniquely original “circus noir” spectacle delivers a twisted bent on the familiar Circus, Musical Theatre and Cabaret stage genres. Backed by a highly emotive and original live music score by Platonic, audiences are taken on a brooding and mystical journey into the dark heart of a vintage circus fraternity where nothing is as it seems. Written and produced by Graham Coupland, founder of Australia’s popular Gangster’s Ball, The Carnival of Lost Souls is a lavish production that showcases a breathtaking mix of performances from world‐class acrobats, aerial artists, illusionists and carnival characters, all whilst telling a tale of desire and betrayal under the classic Big Top. Combined with Victorian Gothic and Steampunk-inspired costuming and stage design, a magical world comes alive where the line between life and death, real and unreal, is truly blurred. Written and Produced by Graham Coupland Starring: Aurora Kurth, Anthony Craig, Simon P Storey, Mimi Le Noire, Richard Vegas, Circus Trick Tease, This Side Up, and Hannah Trott Artistic Director: Terence O’Connell (Spiegelworld’s Empire) Choreographer: Yvette Lee (Dancing With The Stars, X Factor) Lighting Design: Jason Bovaird Costume Design: Clockwork Butterfly Original Songs and Live Music by Platonic
