Two of Australia’s hottest young cabaret icons come together for this camp-as-tits double bill. Joined by their shared love of beautiful Japanese outerwear, Will and James will perform two glorious cabarets for the price of one:
In James and the Halloran, coy James plays unwitting host to a show-stealing, sparkling vaudevillian: The Halloran. Brisbane-born James makes his Melbourne debut, stealing the stage with his soaring counter tenor; his cabaret-opera inventions capturing the carnal and the weird.
In Highs Lies and Shoestring Fries! Will’s abusive tryst with his brash and bolshie drag alter ego Mother Marxist, leads him to a narcissistic plan of self-commodification and fanciful fashion delusion. Joined by Bluegrass band the Scrimshaw Four this is a quipster cabaret of cold war proportions.
Their alter egos in tow, these two cabaret kids promise you a sinister night of sordid cabaret bliss.
