Briefs Factory presents “BRIEFS”
Brighton Fringe Republic (Fringe Venue 86) Next to Brighton Wheel Brighton Beach
May 18 – Jun 3 2016
Big top bravado meets boyish burlesque comedic campery meets contemporary circus sensational spectacle meets shameless splendour.
It’s Briefs, it’s Brighton and it’s back!
This Spring, the heart-stopping blend of cabaret burlesque, Australian machismo and punkish swagger comes to Brighton following a barnstorming year of sell out runs and ecstatic reviews across the world.
The six Aussies and one New Yorker are powered by a fierce energy as they mix up a potent blend of drag, glamour and athleticism, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip syncing, sequins, feathers and frocks.
Incorporating whole portions of new material into some of the Briefs’ favourite fare and introducing a brand new member of the gang, the show combines an eye-popping blend of dog show satire, intimate yo-yo tricks, wind machines, Busby-Berkeley spectacle, pure burlesque and an array of serious circus skills. Audience favourite Shivannah (Fez Fa’anana) has several new and surprising tricks up her voluminous sleeves and leads the chaotic troop through the show with brazen beauty. The Las Vegas award-winning ‘Captain Kidd’ takes a turn as the fabulous bird in his own golden bird bath and stuns the audience with alluring athleticism. The new disorderly Briefs line up welcomes fresh meat in the form of the outrageous James Welby who collides high fashion, avant-garde drag, and kooky pop with dance, circus and music; one of Australia’s leading aerialists, contortionists and circus trainers, Thomas Worrell, who literally ties himself in knots; Evil Hate Monkey, escaped from New York Zoo and dazzling with his award winning burlesque banana ballet, and fresh-faced circus brats Lachy Shelley – from CIRCA ZOO and FLIPSIDE – and Louis Biggs – from FLYING FRUIT FLY CIRCUS – who melt hearts and have the audience gasping for more..
Over the last year Briefs have swaggered, shimmied, swished and swung all over the World, selling out in London, Berlin, Paris, Auckland, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. Brighton marks their first stop in Europe in 2016. Later in the Summer they will take residency at Berlin’s legendary Tipi am Kanzleramt, again before returning London Wonderground in August where they sold out a full two month run in 2015
