Immersive film noir comedy
From the director of Red Bastard comes award-winning private eye, Butt Kapinski. Think it’s a solo show? Think again. Butt invites you to co-star in a film noir murder mystery; a funny, filthy, fully interactive ride riddled with sex, sin, shadows subterfuge – no seat is safe! More info and tickets.
Trygve Wakenshaw: Nautilus
Award-winning mime comedy.
Nautilus, a 75 minute tour-de-force of high octane mime, is the widely lauded follow up to cult-hit physical comedies Kraken andSquidboy from internationally acclaimed idiot Trygve Wakenshaw. More info and tickets.
THE ONE by Jeffrey Jay Fowler
A savage fever dream.
THE ONE is a theatrical fever dream that takes the boy-gets-girl cliche and impales it with marriage’s grim history. An angry guitar sits under hissed words as the story of Him and Her breaks apart in this new piece written by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and performed by Georgia King and Mark Storen. More info and tickets.
Dark, playful Gothic mystery.
Four children play a delightfully dark, frightfully funny game but the violence of a half-forgotten war lurks beyond the torchlight, and surrounding shadows threaten to unleash the darkness within. Born of Gothic novels and silent movies, this is playful physical theatre from Lecoq-trained Tooth+Nail. More info and tickets.
West of the Moon
Fairy tale with shadow puppets.
Colourful projection, shadow puppetry, and live actors tell a story of a girl who becomes a warrior, finds a home, and saves a kingdom. For ages 8 to infinity, think Frozen meets The Princess Bride. More info and tickets.
iOTA in The Average Joe
Hilarious, honest, absurd, sexy solo.
ARIA and Helpmann award-winning star of stage and screen iOTA reconnects with his roots in this candid and hilarious new work directed by Melissa Cantwell. Fusing story and song in a riotous ride through the camp, the confessional and the confrontational. More info and tickets.
