BELFAST’S iconic Cabaret Supper Club will witness a mind-bending performance from world-renowned contortionist Sheyen Caroli this month [February].
The 22-year-old Italian will be making her début Belfast appearance at the Valentine’s Day Super Sexy Love Variety Show on February 14 and performing as part of the lineup at the Saturday night cabaret and Sunday matinee shows.
Known across the globe for her unique performances in theatres, festivals, variety shows, dinner shows and big top circuses, Sheyen promises to wow the Cabaret audiences with her amazing contortionist talents.

“These are performances not to be missed,” he added. “Sheyen is an amazing talent. What she does is jaw-dropping.
“We are delighted to host her at the Cabaret Supper Club, we are constantly bringing more impressive artists.”
