- Spy in the Stall London

Stomp it out on the catwalk, dance until late, laugh until you ache and experience the club night that spawned the international touring sensation Briefs. Paying homage to the traditions of circus, the extremities of physical theatre, the artistry of drag, the guts of burlesque, the imagery of theatre, the debauchery of speakeasies and the showmanship of cabaret. The company uses the circus and variety format as a vehicle for engaging audiences, challenging stereotypes, and exploring notions of gender, sexual orientation, race and politics.
BRED is a hard-hitting, high-velocity & heavy-handed variety show celebrating first nations artists & artistry through physical theatre, drag, music, dance, performance art and show-womanship. BRED is a new production from Briefs Factory that proclaims a roll-call of Australia's finest first nations front runners creating a clever cultural cabaret capsizing with charisma!
Theatre, cabaret, circus and dance has the ability to transport an audience into the idealistic and glitter-bombed world of an artist. BRED aims to fantasise the audience into the world constructed by celebrated cast of first nations performance artists. BRED takes the form of the variety format which has proven to be highly demanded from festival goers across the globe. The freedom, the accessibility and celebratory quintessence of variety is even more relevant in this odd time of COVID19. BRED will entertain audiences with high skill and unabated extravaganza, it will challenge audiences with relevant and alienating perspectives, it will command attention and sustain retention, it will incite meaningful conversation geared towards exploiting and unpacking the status quo.
