Following a year of sell out runs and rave reviews all over the world, this jaw-dropping blend of cabaret burlesque, Australian machismo and punkish swagger comes to the London’s Spiegeltent at Leicester Square Theatre. This winter, don’t miss Briefs returning to London at the Spiegeltent at Leicester Square.
The six Aussies and one New Yorker are powered by a fierce energy as they mix up a potent blend of drag, glamour and athleticism, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip syncing, sequins, feathers and frocks.
Incorporating whole portions of new material into some of the Briefs’ favourite fare, the show combines a heart-stopping blend of dog show satire, intimate yo-yo tricks, wind machines, Busby-Berkeley spectacle, pure burlesque and an array of serious circus skills. Audience favourite Shivannah (Fez Faanana) has several new and surprising tricks up her voluminous sleeves and leads the chaotic troop through the show with brazen beauty. The 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 new disorderly Briefs line up also includes the ferocious Dallas Dellaforce, who brings dynamic drag to a new level; one of Australia’s leading aerialists, contortionists and circus trainers, Thomas Worrell, who literally ties himself in knots; Evil Hate Monkey, escaped from New York Zoo and dazzling with his award winning burlesque banana ballet, and fresh-faced circus brats Lachy Shelley – from CIRCA ZOO and FLIPSIDE – and Louis Biggs – from FLYING FRUIT FLY CIRCUS – who melt hearts and have the audience gasping for more..
