The Black Blues Brothers

Having thrilled audiences at the Fringe in 2019 with a sell-out, five-star run, The Black Blues Brothers returns to Assembly this summer. No one can resist the rhythm and blues of this acrobatic tribute to the legendary cult movie. This incredible troupe of African acrobats have dazzled audiences around the world and performed for Pope Francis at the Vatican and the British Royal Family at the Royal Variety Show.

Set in a nightclub, reminiscent of the Cotton Club, a vintage radio blasts out nostalgic ‘80s hits from the film, including Gimme Some Lovin’, Sweet Home Chicago and Soul Man. As the barman and waiters transform into performers, the acrobats perform jaw-dropping balancing acts, towers of chairs, high-octane drumming, a fire-laced limbo routine and extraordinary human pyramids! Using every chair, table and coat rack available, The Black Blues Brothers brings together contemporary circus and musical comedy as a spectacular night out for all the family. Everybody needs someone to love, and The Black Blues Brothers need you, you and you to get up and get down with them!
