Gasworks’ Cabaret Festival 2007

Gasworks’ Cabaret Festival features a week of events for the cabaret connoisseur. Top of the bill is Bingo Burlesque hosted by the very sassy Shirley Billing and featuring  magician Cath Jamison, and glamorous feathered and tasseled starlets Hi Ball Burlesque. Bingo Burlesque is an unpredictable part-performance, part-gameshow hybrid. It’s an interactive burlesque sideshow cabaret variety hour, where cast, crew and audience play bingo in a tonight show featuring illusions, comedy, song and dance. It’s not your average game of bingo. Also featured in the Cabaret Festival are the melancholic original compositions by local outfit Plastic Palace Alice, whose show The Great Depression rests somewhere between Brechtian cabaret, Bowie, Bacharach and gothic melodrama. The Caravan of Love also invite you to go barefoot at their burlesque performance This Is Not A Shoe, and allow yourself to become immersed in an absurd world of exotic characters, elaborate costumes and tongue-in-cheek cheek.  Visit the Gasworks events & festivals page for more details on each program.
