Le Coup, in the Underbelly Circus Hub’s ‘The Beauty’ tent, is perfectly programmed. The dim lighting, roving spotlights, and tight-packed audience up close to the round stage perfectly evokes the ‘neo-Vaudevillian’ atmosphere set by the production. Six circus performers and three musicians roam the space in character, chatting to the audience and bouncing off each other. Then, the show begins.
