The red-light district refers to an urban area with a concentration of prostitution, sex shops, strip clubs, and adult theaters where, back in the day, red lights were used to mark brothels. Lisbon still has a few of these.
The circus is a 250-year old art form involving clowns, acrobats, trained animals, trapeze acts, musicians, dancers, tightrope walkers, jugglers, magicians, and so on. Lisbon also has a few of these.
And a Red Light Circus? Well, Lisbon has one of those too.
Here’s how the organizers describe it:
“An adult show that explores taboos hidden behind sexual desires. It is a spectacle without barriers that will awaken the erotic impetus through circus art. Everything will be present … the bodies thirsty for desire, the touch of a libido, the mastery of acrobatics, the seductive voice that will guide the audience on this journey. Red Light Circus … the other side of the circus.”
Chapitô, humble Lisbon hub for all things circus, invites you to awaken your erotic impetus for the next two weekends. Must be 18 or older.
