A wonderfully chaotic and charming show with amazing live music, which accompanies stunning acrobatic performances. A very wild and energetic crew with humor and a lack of fear!

Intoxicating noir atmosphere, amazing characters, enthralling music and great interactions with the audience!

Really entertaining show that isn’t too dark for children nor too childish for adults. Jaw dropping acrobatics with a dark neo-vaudeville twist tied together with fantastic live music from a talented band. A very likeable Aussie troupe who have planned an entertaining show that merits the admission price. Highly recommended.

Saw this show tonight and thought it was extremely well done. The performers were enticing and I was hooked while watching them. The piece was very well done and the music tied it together brilliantly.

Billed as a ‘neo-vaudeville speakeasy” the beautiful costumes, velvet, ruffles and bowties certainly augmented their positions and fit in perfectly with the Spiegeltent setting. And the iconic character names like Sister and Ugly, along with the sporting gentlemen vibe matches the quirky Vaudeville style acts, like the bowling ball/contact ball act and plenty of toss the girl style acrobatics accompanied by instances of live jazz music and some raucous gambling.

“Gimme a blood bath!” shouts one performer from the side of the stage. We’re at the circus, but the vibe is of a ring of a very different kind – a boxing arena or, at times, wrestling ring. ...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 154 days ago

Le Coup, in the Underbelly Circus Hub’s ‘The Beauty’ tent, is perfectly programmed. The dim lighting, roving spotlights, and tight-packed audience up close to the round stage perfectly evokes the ‘neo-Vaudevillian’ atmosphere set by the production. Six circus performers and three musicians roam the space in character, chatting to the...

Fest (3/5 stars) 160 days ago

In the past Australia's Company2 cooked up the well-received circus shows Cantina and Scotch & Soda. Their latest outing riffs on the atmosphere of an old-fashioned boxing tent, a shady-sounding form of public entertainment in which groups of professional fighters rocking up in mining towns and the outback, pitching a...

Edinburgh Spotlight (4/5 stars) 160 days ago

Let’s get ready to rumble…Le Coup is La Clique as directed by David Lynch with a hangover. Banjo-playing preacher men soundtrack mostly silent ruff-wearing acrobats as a ringmaster exhorts the audience to bet on their favourites in this circus smackdown grudge match of the century.There’s a lot to love about...
