Wonderland is a debaucherous end-of-year carnival of circus, comedy, music, physical theatre, magic and burlesque. It’s 31 shows in 14 days and lingers on into Brisbane’s long summer nights. Come to Brisbane Powerhouse to flirt with the unexpected and party into the night.
These are just some of the performances and events you can look forward to:
Magician Pete Booth and Mentalist Sean Mergard return to take you on an intimate journey through the history of showbiz’s forgotten legends of the vaudeville and sideshow world. Along the way you’ll learn how to give someone an amazing psychic reading just by looking at them, amazing feats of memory and tricks to delight and disgust your friends and loved ones. It’s an up-close look at the world entertainment left behind.
Armed with her price gun, staff discount and license to tell it how it is, CeCe sings, dances and groans her way through a world of cringe worthy customers and quirky conundrums. Following a sold-out season at Anywhere Festival 2016, Brisbane cabaret artist Cassandra Croucher brings her comedic, one-woman show to Wonderland.
Celebrate the maddening, lackluster world of working retail with the shop girl who knows how to hold her own.
Doll by Babushka
Ramping up their talents, the gals will nurse dolls, break dolls and become dolls in their typically surprising arrangements of everything from Offenbach to Guns ‘n’ Roses. Prepare to be seduced, tickled and burped through a dark musical comedy drawing on opera, 80s pop, nursery rhymes and rock ’n’ roll. Stroll down the cynical side of memory lane and see the world through your dolly’s eyes. They’ll show you how we objectify, pacify and deny! Enter the Babushka Dream House for a very grown up playdate…
Batteries sold separately.
Using live triggering to create soundscapes from the performance itself, Undertone has an interactive process that produces a unique performance every show.
Undertone is reinventing a number of traditional circus disciplines presenting dangerous stunts in sleek new choreographic clothing. It has a vibrant, urban feel to it that produces a range of spectacular and sometimes hilarious scenes.
