LIMBO - The Return!

Limbo the return at the spiegeltent

Strut & Fret is excited to unveil the cast and composers of the much-anticipated LIMBO – The Return, which will head to Newcastle immediately after making its international debut at Adelaide Fringe 2024.


If you've been left spellbound by previous Strut & Fret performances staged within The Spiegeltent at Newcastle’s Civic Park, such as the acclaimed Blanc de Blanc, the outrageously entertaining The Party, or the award-winning LIMBO, you're in for a treat. The Newcastle season will run from 5 April until 3 May.

LIMBO – The Return promises to deliver an exhilarating reimagining of the award winning festival favourites – LIMBO and LIMBO Unhinged, again featuring an international cast of circus luminaries.

Combining a fresh and intoxicating mix of cabaret, circus, acrobatics and ecstatic heartpounding live music, LIMBO – The Return is set to seduce audiences worldwide all over again. The show will again transport audiences to a realm where the line between heaven and hell blurs – resulting in an otherworldly party experience like no other!

“Audiences will be whisked away to a sinister netherworld of gut-churning contortion, breath-taking acrobatics, and jaw-dropping stunts. This high-powered extravaganza leaves you gasping for breath, dancing in the aisles, and shedding a tear,” says Strut & Fret Creative Director Scott Maidment.

The cast brings together a host of wildly hypnotic, world-renowned circus performers and prolific musicians, led by composer and New York’s Jank maestro Sxip Shirey. Sydney musician Mick Stuart joins the live ensemble with irreverent electro-acoustic noise and playfully sexy beats. Sxip’s haunting, ethereal melodies are delivered via an eclectic collection of rare instruments, including Ukrainian jaw harps, siren whistles, megaphones, industrial flutes and a glass harmonica.

LIMBO – The Return will unleash circus darlings, including Bulgaria’s stunning Maria Moncheva (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Germany); French gravity-defying Chinese pole master, beatboxer and clown Mikael Bres (Cirque Du Soleil, La Clique); Australia’s acrobatic dancing sensation Hilton Denis; and daredevil Spanish acrobat and slack rope virtuoso David Marco.

Don’t miss your chance to see this new rendition of LIMBO, the show so hot, Madonna came twice!
