Shanghai MiMi

Date: 3 Dec 2018
Inspired by 1930s Shanghai, a city famous for its flamboyant clubs and heady nights, Shànghǎi MiMi parts the curtains on an enchanted world. 

Directed by internationally acclaimed performer and director Moira Finucane, whose ground-breaking cabarets enrapture audiences from Beijing to Berlin, the performance stars Qinghai Acrobatic Troupe from beyond the Gobi desert and a hotshot live band playing long-lost vintage Chinese jazz and blues unearthed in a condemned Mumbai warehouse.

Meanwhile, dancers, acrobats, aerialists and singers from China, Cameroon, Australia and France give thrilling performances: flying overhead, dazzling your eyes and winning your hearts.
