Direct from its world premiere hit season on Broadway, EMPIRE is the most jaw-dropping show ever seen on the intimate spiegeltent stage. Somersaulting, slapsticking and stripteasing... the most beautiful, daring and incredibly talented artists have been brought together from all over the globe.
Presented by Spiegelworld and Nine Live, EMPIRE is a love letter from New York City, inspired by the vintage days of vaudeville, the night clubs of the East Village, the eccentric characters on Times Square and the big apple's propensity to simply show off. Smashing through the borders of comedy, circus, variety and burlesque, EMPIRE is a weekend-long party in Manhattan, squeezed into 90 minutes and onto a 9-foot diameter stage. And it's all presented in the Spiegelworld carnival atmosphere with its beautifully historic spiegeltent, speak-easy bar and other curiosities. It all adds up to the best night out you will have this summer.

Single tickets go on sale from 9am on 7 January 2013. Timothy Constable, Percussion Stacey McCallum, Kimberley Davis, Shane Weatherby, Dancers Rosetta Cook from 2ballerinas, Choreographer Southern Cross Soloists take a spin in a new direction with the addition of rhythm and dance to their traditional chamber repertoire. Movement and percussion have been part of the human experience since time immemorial. Throughout history, dance has been used to tell stories - in ceremonies, rituals and entertainment - and has often been accompanied by rhythmic music. So, when Southern Cross Soloists invited percussionist Timothy Constable (an absolute audience favourite) to take part in this concert, it was with excitement that he agreed to participate as both guest soloist and composer. With an eclectic mix of works from the Baroque to the brand new, there's something for everyone in this vibrant program.
