BRIEFS: The Second Coming

Picture this: Cirque du Soleil meets RuPaul’s Drag Race.

After sold out shows in Berlin and Edinburgh, Australia's very own boylesque troupe is administering a hot injection of sass to Sydney Festival with Briefs: The Second Coming. Part cabaret, part variety show, Briefs is like an up-late version of Cirque de Soleil but the performers wear far fewer clothes and have much tighter rigs.

Sip a glass of bubbly, while beautifully bearded ringmastress Shivannah presents a glitter-fuelled mixed bag of acts including incredible acrobatics, bedazzled barely-there costumes, and a whole lot of sequin-clad genitalia. The show is laugh out loud funny with a sharp political edge as Shivannah quips, "This isn't a show about being gay, it's a show about human beings."

Briefs: The Second Coming is the perfect show for a boozy night out with friends — there's a sexy birdbath, there's a glitter cannon and after that second aerial act… there's not a dry seat in the house.

This is one of 15 next-level events to see at Sydney Festival. Check out the whole list.
