Acrobat, musician, dancer, actor, mime, choreographer — Thierree is returning to Sydney Festival for the fourth time after sell-out seasons of Junebug Symphony (2003), Bright Abyss (2006) and Au Revoir Parapluie (2008). InTabac Rouge, Thierree pushes the boundaries of dance, circus and theatre in the roles of director, choreographer and set designer to deliver a performance that Thierree describes as being about “desire, power, systems and mechanisms of society, and of how people organise themselves”.

Tabac Rouge, which will run from 7-23 January at Sydney Theatre, features a highly skilled cast of acrobats and dancers who weave a physically daring production filled with spectacular theatrics under Thierree’s unique direction. The choreography is complemented by Victoria Thierree’s costume design and a dynamic score that ranges from Matthieu Chedid to Vivaldi.  Tabac Rouge contains no spoken word, making the performance ideal for international visitors to enjoy without language barriers.

Sydney Festival 2015 will feature hundreds of world class events and attract visitors from all over the globe. The full 2015 program will be announced on 23 October 2014, however visitors are encouraged to book now to take advantage of great value travel packages and avoid disappointment.
