About the Show
Fresh from London’s West End, the boys are back in town with a dazzling new show, featuring their trademark heart-stopping blend of insanely talented cabaret burlesque, comic capery and circus to die for – all with punkish swagger.
Prepare yourself for interstellar aerial feats and warp-speed strippers from outer space as the Briefs boys apply their skill and humour to push the boundaries of artistry, masculinity and decency.
The third show from Briefs Factory, Close Encounters premiered at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2017, had its UK debut at London’s Underbelly Festival on The Southbank, enjoyed a successful run at Auckland’s Q Theatre, and in 2018 crash-landed at Sydney Festival with Adelaide Cabaret Festival and Edinburgh Fringe 2018 also on the flight path. The Melbourne run follows their London West End season.
Duration : around 1 hour 50 mins.
