Embersong

The remains of passion are but embers in a dying fire able to be reignited… by a change of heart’. Embersong is a Circus and Fire Arts outdoor Spectacle set in in a post-apocalyptic agrarian future. A story told in movement and song of two lovers and their polarised clans as they collide in a season of abundance. But when sparks fly and hearts cry, is that enough to make the flame die?

For adults only (of all sexualities and genders and abilities). Prepare to be smouldered by a journey into the senses and know that embers are only as hot as the fire that created them.

Jacinta Gregory – My Intervention

You all waited far too long to do this, so Jacinta has taken matters into her own hands, and decided to throw her own intervention. Snacks, refreshments and a space to air grievances will be available for all to enjoy!

A blend of comedy and cabaret featuring original songs, ‘My Intervention’ is the story of a person so isolated and desperate for company that they make a space where people are forced to attend. Hilarious, raw, and gut-punchingly honest, My Intervention is a show you won’t want to miss.

OMGWTF

A dynamite, late-night romp of burlesque, circus, drag, sideshow and magic. We light up the stage with delightfully devilish displays of debauchery the likes of which you’ll never be able to unsee. One whole hour that represents approximately 169 years of repenting for sins you didn’t even commit, only witnessed. On the Scoville Scale, this once-in-a-lifetime kinda spice makes the Carolina Reaper look like a silly little ice cube.

That’s right: We’ve just sassed the hottest chili in the world and we’d do it again. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you won’t know where to look or what to do with your hands. Come for the shock, stay for the awe.
