Review – Ajak Kwai: Of Cows, Women and War

Amidst the traditional and contemporary blend of Sudanese folk songs and Aussie-Sudanese stylings, she engages her audience with stories of her past and present; from the unimaginable horrors of learning of the deaths of her family and friends in conflict-ridden South Sudan to the struggles and adventures of her everyday life in Australia.

Review – Glory Box

Glory Box challenges everything the audience thinks they know about burlesque, the art of seduction, and their own limits. In one swoop of a hula hoop, the audience is asking for more, more, more, and the performers give everything they have.

Review – Suck It Up

Mickster the Trickster has an impressive confidence and stage presence. His quirky sense of humour and ability to surprise you, just when you think you’ve figured it out, are a good indication this up-and-coming magician is definitely a talent to watch out for.

Review – Anthropy

The whole show came together really well and was extremely entertaining. It left you wondering how the tricks were actually possible, which is exactly how you want to leave a magic show; in awed disbelief.

Review – The Vaudevillians

Reimagining everything from Madonna to Daft Punk, the show peaks in a blistering rendition of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” (complete with a nod to Priscilla, Queen of the Desert). This is cabaret at its best – witty, hilarious and oozing with talent.
