Event details

Inspired by a tale as old as time, MATADOR is a fiery fusion of burlesque, dance and jaw-dropping circus acts. Set across a fiery Spanish sunset, this is a tale of forbidden love, carnal desires, passion and pain, a tale of a love torn bull & the seductive Matador!

MATADOR takes us on an emotionally charged journey through love and it's many faces. A journey of self discovery, identity and sexuality, of lust, sex and passion. It explores the trials and tribulations of love, from the pain of unrequited love to the effects of infidelity on a relationship.

Above all else, MATADOR is a celebration of love, friendship and the bonds that hold us together.
