6 - 29 Sept | The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent




Strut & Fret Production House (AUS)

World Premiere

"Strut & Fret… is no less than sensational." WHATSONSTAGE, UK

A spectacular new corruption from the people who brought you BLANC de BLANC and LIMBO UNHINGED.

A joyous cocktail of entertainment and enlightenment, let this cast of international prodigies and deviants lead you on an adventure of hedonistic theatrical anarchy.

Starring international clowning royalty Goos Meeuwsen (Cirque du Soleil), Mick Stuart and Hilton Denis (LIMBO), Blaise Garza (Violent Femmes), and featuring multi-lingual jazz vocalist sensation Fantine.

Throw yourself into a joyful celebration of what it means to be human.

A word of warning - this show contains drug references, full frontal nudity, attempted pyrokinesis, and adult concepts.

"Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive." ELBERT HUBBARD

This performance contains strobe lighting, pyrotechnic smoke effects, full-frontal nudity, coarse language and drug references. Non-toxic and non-staining paint and powder is used at the end of the performance.
