|Taboo is billed as "The show of secret fantasies" -- with tattoos|
But unfortunately most of its visitors, mainland Chinese, are more interested in frittering away their red bricks of cash than partaking in some cultural enrichment.

However the actual show is not really seductive nor is it erotic -- but mostly dancers with not much clothing on.
Technically they are brilliant -- there is one sequence where men wearing nothing but black trousers and boots are dancing. And then it isn't towards the end do we realize some of them are wearing heeled boots and hence their sultry swagger.
|Impressive pole dancing that's more physical than seductive|
Same with the male gymnast who hung from straps from the ceiling doing various moves with such strength and skill that one could only imagine his core must be as hard as a rock!
There were a few bits that seemed odd, like the bride stripping for her wedding night, and the tattooed female sword swallower, even though she was very flirty with the audience.
So we shall see if TABOO and its "secret fantasies" catch on... but with tickets ranging from HK$580 to HK$980 on weekdays and HK$680 to HK$1,180 on weekends, one has to wonder... who will pay to watch this?
