Geraldine Hickey – Don’t Tease Me About My Gloves

I now wear gloves when it’s not cold enough to warrant wearing gloves because I have a thing called Raynaud’s Disease/Phenomenon/Syndrome. I had never heard of it, and not many other people have. This show is just an opportunity to explain what Raynaud’s is to as many people at once, because doing it individually is a pain. Also, I’ll talk about other things I’ve had going on in the last year. Might yell a bit, in a passionate way, could you imagine me being aggressive? Seen on the 2023 Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala, Thank God You’re here and Have You Been Paying Attention? Winner – Mel...

Humans 2.0

 A symphony of acrobatics, sound and light, this is next level circus by Circa. Ten bodies appear in a flash of light. They move in harmony for a fleeting moment and then descend into a sinuous trance. Towers grow and decay, bodies leap and are caught, as physical limits are pushed to their extreme. Can we ever find a perfect balance or is adapting to constant change the only way forward? “…70 minutes of wonder … perfectly timed, perfectly executed, perfectly staged” – Courier Mail  “[Humans 2.0] pushes the boundaries of what circus and acrobatics can be” – Time Out This next chapte...

Cabaret & Comedy : I want it that gay

It’s 1998… you’re sitting in front of the telly on Saturday morning watching Video Hits. The Spice Girls pop up on screen, you LOVE the Spice Girls! But soon you’re wondering – do I want to be Sporty Spice or do I want to be with Sporty Spice? I Want it That Gay is a cabaret-comedy that sheds light and humour on the challenges of growing up with starkly heteronormative music, popstars and paradigms. At times hilarious and at times heartbreaking, the show is an irreverent look at the way popular culture shapes what we see and therefore who we’re allowed to be. Think Destiny’s Child, Britne...
