'La Soiree' in the Palais des Glaces..



Friday the 13th, unlucky for some.. thankfully not for us. We went to one the hottest shows in the Fringe Festival La Soirée, it was so much naughty fun :) No photos allowed unfortunately, there were many marvelous acrobatic moments that would have been brilliant to capture, but to be honest it was more enjoyable watching and participating without thinking of  'that shot' :) I did take a few to try and capture the atmosphere inside the Palais des Glaces, described as 'the grand old dame of spiegle tents, her first visit to Perth Fringe. The show is so popular it has been extended for two more weeks. 

  
Wandering around the "Pleasure Gardens' before the show.. the mermaids were playing, the beer-gardens were busy. Hot weather/beer.. a popular combination, make mine a 'shandy'! Hot start to the week in Perth 37C, wonder if there's room in that mermaid tank for moi :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  4. I like Birdman's response. It does have the sort of Moulin Rouge look to it.

  5. Looks like you had a fun time of it! Nothing like that here, -6C and snowing.

  6. Wow, brillo! That looks like Prague more than Moulin-Rouge to me, sort of Mucha in the roaring 20s! Is the place full of mirrors?

    Thanks for your note, Grace. I haven't been posting as often as I would like which means I haven't been commenting either. Just keep running out of time. Trying to sort that out :).

  29. So love the mix of bright colour and night lights. I wonder how long those poor mermaids need to rest on their arms. A test of patience and strength.
