SuperMartXé revamps their show, converting it into a 360º experience
Magic and creativity continue to be the foundations of the great theatre of dreams that is SuperMartXé. But the difference now is that the experience will go beyond just what’s happening on the stage; it will leap onto the dancefloor to fully immerse partygoers in the whole awesome spectacle and fill the temple of music that is Privilege Ibiza with emotion.
For this, SuperMartXé will include not only the very best stylists, make-up artists, and prop artists, but also the best lineup of performers, acrobats, fire show specialists, singers, masters of different electronic instruments and many other artists.
Together, they will tell a story and energise the crowd from both the stage and the dancefloor to complete the 360º experience of the viewer, who will not only listen and watch but also be able to actively live the experience with all their senses, becoming an active part of the theatricality of a live SuperMartXé show.
Among the many surprises that SuperMartXé has prepared for this season, the complete revamping of its themes is one of the most notable. More irreverent, sensual, and provocative than ever, with XXL theatrical and technological production values and revolutionary artistic direction, SuperMartXé can reveal the first four themes of the season: Cyber Geisha, Freak Show, Peep Show and Wild Cathedral.
This summer, SuperMartXé will take you to the future. A future ruled by an army of Cyber Geishas from the 22nd century, inhabiting a totally eclectic and futuristic cyber punkversion of Planet Earth. Privilege will be transfomed into a new world, combining a classic architectural style, technologically awesome backgrounds, and neon lights and luminous signs, with the sensuality and disconcerting grace of a universe of Cyber Geishas – among other beings – from another era. The crowd will happily submit to them.
The next journey takes us to the wildest, most sinful side of the SuperMartXé festival: Wild Cathedral, packed with irreverent nuns and pretty altar boys, shining altars and a congregation of sexy rockers, performers, acrobats and dancers, both on and off the stage. Ready to confess all your sins?
The big display windows and neon lights of a city inspired by Amsterdam’s Red Light District, Peep Show will be a journey through our desires, our carnal passions, our deepest fantasies. A journey guided by a massive stage production, urban and underground as well as ostentatious and luxurious, and which will exude luxury and sensuality above all else. Pure desire throughout Privilege's main hall…
And the final journey – which can just now be revealed – will immerse us under a giant red and white tent, with a host of characters with enormous muscles and incredible strength, beautiful and extravagant concubines, masters of ceremonies, acrobats, contortionists, tightrope walkers, fire jugglers, stilt walkers, knife throwers, snake charmers… all of this with the eroticism and sophistication of a grand burlesque show the likes of which have never been seen before on the island. The new Freak Show from SuperMartXé involves an ambitious stage setup, converting Privilege’s main room into a huge stage, and filling this new show with all the magic of the circus. The great theatre of dreams has never been so immense. Let the show begin!
There is still a lot more to be revealed and above all a lot to be enjoyed, so for the moment just remember that this summer in Ibiza, beginning on Friday, June the 28th, you have a date with the inimitable SuperMartXé show at Privilege Ibiza
