Briefs: Close Encounters

A night of galactic glamour, astro-athleticism and interstellar aerials.

All-male burlesque troupe Briefs are coming back to Brisbane for MELT with their latest show Close Encounters. For anyone who hasn't seen one of their performances, expect something unlike anything you've experienced — glamorous cabaret and performance mixed with humour and just a little raunch. Oh, and this one is futuristic.

Formed back in 2008, the crew has moved from club shows to selling out stages in London, Berlin, Paris, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. Holding performances from May 23 to 26, and then again on June 1 and 2, their latest effort includes dancing, acro-balancing, trapeze, lip-syncing and frocks — and, of course, plenty of social commentary about masculinity, plus a whole lot more.
