The House

The House

From the creative team behind the 2021 Piazza hit show — Auntie's Fiafia Night.

World Premiere

This year, Meanjin's trailblazing ballroom house, The House of Alexander, reignites South Bank Piazza with their newest show.

The House transverses through time and space weaving together ancestral knowledge from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nations, the opulent nations of Southeast Asia, and to the archipelagos of the Pacific, back to the queer liberation of the underground ballroom scene in Harlem, New York.

Showcasing traditional cultural dances reflecting the way of life and the various sounds across oceans fused with the highly stylised art form of voguing, this show will run like a thread as we remind ourselves of the warm caress of our homelands.

Join us, as we voyage together through a night of self-expression and cultural intersection like our city has never seen before!

Progressive. Revolutionary. Liberating. 

The Alexander Ball: Curious Australia is now streaming on SBS On Demand. Logins required.
