PROJECTS

THE RAPTURE

THE RAPTURE

An explosive, electrifying genre-defying, immersive live-art salon, internationally renowned for its rigor and daring in defining & redefining of performance forms.

INTIMATE 8

INTIMATE 8

Moira Finucane, the inaugural Creative Fellow of the National Gallery of Victoria, in her time-based aural immersive work. Featured: Anguish (Angoisse) (c. 1878) August Friedrich Albrecht SCHENCK. NGV

THE FLOOD

THE FLOOD

The Flood. The sheep farm is now dilapidated. The farm house, dark and squalid, still sits by the river. As the sun sets, the flood waters rise.

THE EXOTIC LIVES OF LOLA MONTEZ

THE EXOTIC LIVES OF LOLA MONTEZ

Lola Montez was the wildest showgirl of the nineteenth century; and her 1855 Australian tour put Mick Jagger to shame.

DANCE HALL

DANCE HALL

Dance Hall is a supper dance like no other! It's a place where international stars and local artists mix it up with dance tunes to die for.

GLORY BOX

GLORY BOX

An explosive, electrifying genre-defying, immersive live-art salon, internationally renowned for its rigor and daring in defining & redefining of performance forms.

CARNIVAL OF MYSTERIES

CARNIVAL OF MYSTERIES

From the world’s pre-eminent purveyors of provocative variety and intimate spectacle comes the freakishly beautiful, seductive, surreal indoor carnival of mysteries.

DIVA DIVE

DIVA DIVE

Moira Finucane's intimate and inimitable salon of wild tales and cocktails. It's a diva overdose & every night Moira is joined by a diva or three.

FEAST OF ARGENTINA

FEAST OF ARGENTINA

Commissioned by the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, The Feast brings together diva Argentina with fairground icon and gourmand KT Prescott to create a whirlwind of tales and tastes.

CARAVAN BURLESQUE

CARAVAN BURLESQUE

The Parisian Salon of sultry songs & underdressed sirens, Bollywood love gods, circus stars, backroom ballerinas and gothic queens…

GOTHARAMA

GOTHARAMA

Like a pop-up picture book with a decidedly nasty streak, the bed-curtains draw back and Finucane’s thirteen gothic characters are unleashed. Mining a rich and varied vein – from bodice rippers to the supernatural

SALON DE DANSE

SALON DE DANSE

Whirl into Finucane & Smith’s decrepit dance hall, dipped in acid green and noir black, a mesmerising physical display from a wild pack of dancers & physical artistes.

THE ALIENS

THE ALIENS

Sparse, dry, humorous and disturbing 'The Aliens' turned heads from the very beginning, resulting in short listing for the Griffin Playwright Award, The HQ short story award, The Kit Denton Fellowship and won The Patrick White Playwright Award.

'Unmissable… the minds that inspired it are as sexy as the bodies that perform it…comic, erotic, dynamic, acrobatic… The Burlesque Hour is a night to remember that will retain its power to delight and disturb long after the Carnival is over'
THE AGE, MELBOURNE
'Luscious and indulgent and glorious ... riveting and
empowering and awe inspiring in its beauty. You should not miss your chance to experience a transformative and spell binding night of story telling.'
