If you like mime, physical theatre, and comedy mashed into one show then go no further. L.I.A.R is one of the best fringe acts I have seen over the past five years. Engaging from start to finish. Received a standing ovation that was well earned tonight,Tue 18 Feb.

AMAZING!

L.I.A.R. blends acrobatics (including amazing rope, pole and wirework) with comedy in a modern retelling of Shakespeare's seven stages of a man's life, from birth to spaceflight. I can understand why so many reviewers have rated it the best of all time: that may be an exaggeration, but it's the best of the dozens of acts I've seen this Fringe. I caught the (sold out) last show and am sorry I can't see it again and that there's no point in enthusing about it to my friends in Perth, but if you're in Adelaide, seriously, see it. It's that good.

L.I.A.R is perhaps one of the greatest shows that Fringe World has been graced with. The performers dip between acrobatics, side-splitting humour and thought provoking themes; teamed with amazing and atmospheric live music. The performance is a must-see, that will hopefully be returning again and again!

It’s always great when you go to a show with very little prior knowledge of what to expect. Without a doubt the top pick of my fringe visits this year.

Brilliant show that is a mix of comedy and circus/acrobatic performance. Fantastic use of props and amazing musical talents. A must see show.

Amazing artist and theatrics. A show about ones own life from infant to young boy, to teenager to adult. Well orchestrated. And a lot of talent in there. This was the best of 3 shows i saw on Sat night. Recommended.

A brilliant and beautiful show. Didn't know if it was circus, theatre or comedy but I didn't care. Loved every minute.

Reviewed by MEl 2020

I had no idea what I should be expecting, but this exceeded everything. The special effects used on all of their stunts made everything so surreal, as if it had been airbrushed or edited in real life. So much amazing talent and charisma.

Watched the premier of L.I.A.R last and it was not what I was expecting - but in a good way. A really different show to come out of Strut n Fret (the company behind Limbo, Blanc de Blanc and the recent Boom Boom). It had a lovely narrative and was visually spectacular. Not a typical fringe show so highly recommend you dont miss out on seeing this one.
