Dutch for ‘mirror tent’, the Spiegeltent originated in Belgium in the late 19thcentury as a travelling entertainment venue. The exquisite Aurora Spiegeltent is an extravagant big top tent decorated with mirrors, stained glass, velvet and brocade with a beautifully glamorous old-world feel.

The season is headlined by the award-winning sell-out sensation LIMBO. The intoxicating mix of cabaret, circus and acrobatics, led by an international cast has seduced audiences worldwide with a celebration of otherworldly proportions.

Presented in the magnificent Aurora Spiegeltent, LIMBO whisks audiences into a sinister netherworld of gut-churning contortion, breath-taking acrobatics, and jaw-dropping stunts. A sold-out hit everywhere from London to Munich, Auckland to Adelaide, Bogota to Brussels, this show is so hot, Madonna came twice!

Director of production company Strut & Fret and LIMBO, Scott Maidment, says “we are super excited to bring LIMBO and The Spiegeltent to Geelong. It’s been quite a few years in the making and we think its new home at Johnstone Park will be the perfect place to enjoy this special event; hopefully for years to come.”

The full 2019 program will also feature some of Australia’s biggest touring artists soon to be announced.

Dates: Thursday 30th May – Sunday 23rd June
Location: Johnstone Park, Gheringhap Street, Geelong
