Alt-Cabaret Stars Get Personal in a Story Slam Variety Extravaganza at Melbourne Fringe
Stars of Melbourne's thriving alt-cabaret scene unite to tell their stories in a variety show with a personal twist.
Hosted by burlesque queen and storyteller, Becky Lou, who has trawled the glittery underbelly of the international Fringe Festival circuit, queer parties, Comedy Clubs, circus spaces and burlesque bars to bring together Seen & Heard's stellar line-up, featuring (on selected evenings throughout the season) internationally acclaimed circus artist Anna Lumb (The Burlesque Hour, La Soiree), showgirl and pleasure activist Frankie Valentine (Baby Got Back), dance cult director Liz Cahalan (Bey Dance), powerhouse chanteuse Jessamae St James (Not Another Indie Cabaret), gender transcendent diva Mama Alto (The Rapture, Glory Box), label-defying performance artist Jessica McKerlie(Gender Spanner) and award winning comedian Kirsty Webeck (Queers of Comedy).
A stunning showcase of song, circus, dance, striptease and vaudeville, combined with the confessional art of storytelling made popular by story slams like The Moth.
