Australia’s prolific, internationally acclaimed circus comedy troupe, Dummies Corp, brings you a daringly delightful new spectacle for adults: Dumtectives in Cirque Noir.

Is there anything more deliciously fun than a noir-esque circus comedy show, inside a Spiegeltent? Devilishly naughty and wickedly wild, Dumtectives in Cirque Noir weaves acrobatic feats through an outrageous, slapstick whodunnit murder mystery, served with a side of saucy tricks.

Starring (and co-created by) the multi award-winning, acrobatically-agile and comedically gifted performers Amy Nightingale-Olsen, Thomas McDonald, Leigh Rhodes and David Splatt, this brand spanking new extravaganza will play The Pleasure Garden’s Lotterywest De Parel Spiegeltent from 14 January – 13 February. Tickets are on sale now via FRINGE WORLD. The show will go on to tour to Adelaide and Melbourne from February-April.

Set in a by-gone era of cheap dames and dirty dicks, Dumtectives in Cirque Noir smashes together wow-worthy stunts with guns, fun, and innuendo. Extraordinary clowning, dynamite slapstick and tantalizing burlesque come together for a night of entertainment that’s sure to blow out your gun barrel and leave you sensationally sated.

With an original score by multi-instrumentalist Mal Webb (The Adventures of Lano & Woodley), this highly original slapstick feat has had reviewers comparing it to the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

The Dumtectives are on a mission: uncover the murderer, navigate the seductions of a femme fatale, and avoid bitter betrayal. Outright chaos ensues, with aerial adventures, knife juggling, thrilling car chases and even interrogations of suspicious looking audience members.
