What do you get when you combine kings of circus, queens of drag, burlesque royalty, glitter, feathers and flesh? Briefs – an award-winning all-male burlesque troupe described as an Aussie Cirque du Soleil meets Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
From their humble beginnings playing in Brisbane’s underbelly of late-night speakeasies and renegade circus cabarets, Briefs have toured internationally, accumulating awards globally with an all-star cast. And now they’re bringing their glitz, glitter and calamity back to the Brisbane Powerhouse.
Get ready for a madcap safari through extravagant birdbath boylesque, too close for comfort yo-yo tricks, valiant aerial acrobatics, irreverent interludes, ferocious fanfare and show-stopping drag artistry.
Circus stunts, drag acts, Aussie humour and frivolity collide on stage in this non-stop, eye-popping riot of physicality and fun. Expect the unexpected in this array of satire and skills as the Briefs boys present burlesque… with balls!
