Review: The Death Do Us Part Danger Show
August 12, 2016 Laura Caldwell 0 Comments
Last year we had the Pretty Things Peepshow, this year the Death Do Us Part Danger Show, and yet again these guys didn’t disappoint. The Cabaret Supperclub was the venue for the night’s antics, but Belfast is just one in a long list of cities enchanted by this ragtag band of misfits.
Rachel Atlas, our host for the evening is resplendent as usual in a Día de los Muertos style headdress atop a rather modern white/grey wig. Speaking almost entirely in rhyming couplets we are introduced to Charlie Atlas, Jacqueline Fury, and Madeleine Glasseater who go on to entertain, amaze and terrify us throughout the night.
The graceful Jacqueline Fury begins with an impressive act which seamlessly marries magic and burlesque (the two are so well suited it’s amazing no one has thought of it before), before going on to eat fire and do an extremely impressive burlesque dance whilst balancing a sword on her head.
The sideshow showgirl Madeleine Glasseater spins hoops, conducts electricity and even has a go at channelling an unqualified scientist, whilst our host Rachel Atlas and her husband Charlie Atlas (Scotland’s answer to Hugh Jackman) participate in what is still the most terrifying knife throwing act we’ve ever seen. Throw in Rachel’s aptitude for swallowing swords, and Charlie’s rendition of Magic Mike’s Pony and we’re sold. The Death Do Us Part Danger Show is without a doubt the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
Uncompromising, unflinching, unbelievable and totally unlike anything you’ve ever seen, this is a show that will both amaze and delight. Follow the Death Do Us Part Danger Show on Facebook, Instagram, or their website for more shocking feats.
