Cabaret Décadanse

Sexy puppets for adults

Cabaret Décadanse is the ultimate puppet show for adults... sensual, surprising and hilarious.
— Sunday Independent, Dublin
Who would have thought puppets could be so wickedly sexy?
— Carmel Vesey, City Tribune, Galway
Think of Priscilla Queen of the Desert meets Moulin Rouge done with puppets and written by Pedro Almodovar and you’re half way there. [...] A fine example of a show that might just change your perceptions of what a puppet show should be.
— Gary Flockhart, Evening News, Edinburgh
Delicious, more than human...
— Pablo Ley, El Pais, Madrid
These pint-sized performers seem so real that you half expect to see them after the show in the bar or leaving the theatre in a fleet of little limos.
— Shannon Huse, The New Zealand Herald, Auckland
The wonderful puppeteers from Cabaret Décadanse literally give flesh and sex-appeal to dolls.
— La Presse, Montréal
A delight.
— Roberto Herrero, El Diario Vasco, San Sebastian
A delicious evening... You’ve always got a smile on your lips.
— Isabelle Massé, La Presse, Montreal
Highlights for me included Cabaret Décadanse, a puppetry duo whose incredibly animated 90s-pop-singing puppet opened the show...
— Great About Perth
Sly humour, a bit of nostalgia, and exceptional handling and performance.
— Carlos Gil, Artez # 79, Manacor
Cabaret Décadanse’s puppets are a phenomenon.
— Le Devoir, Montréal
The delightful puppeteering of Cabaret Décadanse lulls you into a false sense of relaxation as the Montreal duo bring life to a set of quirky, funny and sexy characters...
— PerthNow
[The puppeteers’] skill and, in particular, their teamwork, are extraordinary.
— Pedro Zabalza, Noticias de Navarra, Pamplona
A splendid job! Cabaret Décadanse satisfied its night time audience with elegance.
— Manuel Sesma S., El Adelantado de Segovia
Brilliant... extraordinary... incomparable technical skill.
— Pep Martorell, El Punt Del Barcelones, Barcelona
