SOAP, the undisputed hit of the Adelaide Fringe and sell out seasons at Sydney Opera House and Brisbane Festival, returns to Australia in 2017 to delight Melbourne audiences with its striking originality.

Immediately enthralling and accessible for all ages, SOAP is an intelligent and splash-filled fusion of contemporary circus, comedy, physical theatre and cabaret. A dazzling range of water-soaked routines performed to an exciting and eclectic soundtrack delivers 70 minutes of genuine showmanship with seemingly effortless grace.

From moments of divine beauty – a captivating gymnastic performance on a bath ledge – to a humorous love story between two feet, SOAP has captivated the hearts of over 1.5 million audience members around the globe. It’s steamy, funny and absolutely jaw-dropping.
