Six Aussies, one New Yorker and a potent blend of glamour and athleticism, infused with dancing, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip syncing, six-inch heels and sequined frocks. It’s fierce performance-art drag, incredible acrobatics and skilled mischievous boylesque.

From their humble beginnings playing in Brisbane’s underbelly of late-night speakeasies and renegade circus cabarets, the Briefs boys have toured internationally, accumulating awards globally with an all-star cast.

A heart-stopping blend of cabaret burlesque, Australian machismo and punkish swagger, Briefs is set to take Melbourne by storm after a year of glitter bombing the globe, from London and Berlin to Edinburgh, Paris and Glastonbury. Described as an Australian Cirque du Soleil meets Ru Paul’s Drag Race, Briefs present an eye-popping blend of satire, too close for comfort yo-yo tricks, valiant aerial acrobatics and show stopping drag.

Audience fave Shivannah (Fez Faanana) - who has several new and surprising tricks up her voluminous sleeves - guides the chaotic troop through the show with brazen beauty.

Las Vegas award-winning Captain Kidd takes a turn as the fabulous bird in his own golden bird bath and stuns the audience with alluring athleticism.

The ferocious Dallas Dellaforce brings dynamic drag to a new level as one of Australia’s leading aerialists, contortionists and circus trainers.

Thomas Worrell literally ties himself in knots and Evil Hate Monkey escapes from a New York Zoo and dazzles with his award winning burlesque banana ballet.

Fresh-faced circus brats Lachy Shelley - from Circa Zoo and Flipside - and Louis Biggs - from Flying Fruit Fly Circus - melt hearts and leave the audience gasping for more.

Expect the unexpected as the Briefs boys present burlesque with balls!
