Bursting back on the scene with a new name and new energy, Queensland Cabaret Festival throws its arms around this beautiful state of ours with a cavalcade of cabaret, winding its way from city to coast.
Spanning the full spectrum of this unique style of entertainment, Queensland Cabaret Festival will be captivating audiences in June 2014.
Cracking comedy and social satire, exotic music from far flung places, local luminaries shining the light on the darker recesses of the soul, celebrations of song and visual delights. Sparkling, sexy and sophisticated. Kitschy and quirky…
Cabaret is alive and well and living in the Sunshine State.
SUBMISSIONS FOR QUEENSLAND CABARET FESTIVAL MUST CLOSE THIS FRIDAY DECEMBER 20
In 2014, cabaret in Queensland is expanding statewide. We’re looking for high-quality shows by talented Australian artists to feature at this new event.
International and Australian cabaret stars take to the stage from 6-15 June at Queensland Cabaret Festival – a new festival taking place across Brisbane Powerhouse, QPAC, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Arts Centre Gold Coast, Ipswich Civic Centre and in regional centres.
According to Queensland Cabaret Festival co-creative producers Kris Stewart and Alison St. Ledger the festival is set to bring Queenslanders the best of local and international cabaret.
Kris Stewart commented “Queensland Cabaret Festival builds upon the Brisbane Cabaret festival foundations and takes it to another level – there’ll be international and Australian performers covering the sequin-spangled heights of cabaret in all its forms.
“If you enjoy great music, dance, circus and burlesque, delivered with drama, humour and glamour then you’ll be right at home during Queensland Cabaret Festival.”
Alison St. Ledger said “We want artists that will shock, entertain and seduce an audience; no idea is too wild. We encourage everyone to submit their shows and get involved.”
Pitch your show! Submissions will close at 5pm Friday 20 December, 2013
