Unfortunately, Laura Murphy has injured herself and the performances during SMELLS LIKE CIRCUS cannot take place. Have you  bought a ticket for this performance? You will soon receive an email from VIERNULVIER.


Circus, stand-up and live art blended in a solo-cabaret of contradictions. Fierce, witty and uncompromising, this highly physical show interrogates personal, social and historical occupations of the female body and explores, literally, where such bodies are positioned and how we are meant to look at them. Expect scenes of nudity, aerial acrobatics, and explicit references to mythical reptiles and female sexuality.



PLEASE NOTE: The minimum age for this performance is 16+. This performance contains explicit scenes.

Public transportation
The closest stops to De Vooruit are the Bagattenstraat (bus), Gent Zuid (bus & tram) and Vogelmarkt (tram). From Gent-Sint-Pieters station, take tram 1 towards Evergem, to the Plateaustraat stop. There are several bus connections from Gent-Dampoort station to Gent Zuid.

If you want to park nearby, you can go to the following car parks: Zuid car park (Zuid-Reep zone), Savaanstraat car park (Vrijdagmarkt zone) and Sint-Pietersplein car park.

If you enter Vooruit via the entrance hall in Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat, immediately turn right and walk up the stairs to the very top – the third floor. There, you take the first door on the right. At the end of the corridor, take the stairs all the way to the top. There you will find the Domzaal.
